 Equity benchmark indices were upbeat during early hours on Wednesday in line with Asian peers after four days of losses. As reports of a slight decline in the number of new coronavirus cases in China poured in, investors hoped that officials will roll out more stimuli to support the world's second-largest economy. At 10:15 am, the BSE S&P Sensex edged higher by 248 points or 0.61 per cent to 41,138 while the Nifty 50 rose by 69 points at 12,062.
