The banking index rose over 1 percent helped by gains in ICICI Bank, which also ended as the top Sensex gainer.

Its shares, which ended at 815 rupees, have gained 145 percent since April.

However, analyst Sudarshan Sukhani says ICICI Bank is likely to underperform, given that it is a beaten down stock.
