Japan's Nikkei was up 0.52 per cent, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng declined 0.84 per cent in early trade today. Shanghai Composite too was marginally down.
The 30-share index was quoting higher by 123.06 points, or 0.35 percent, at 35,670.39. It had gained 260.59 points in the previous session.
All the sectoral indices were trading higher, led by capital goods, consumer durables, infrastructure, banking, realty and oil, and gas.
Similarly, the broader 50-share NSE Nifty edged up 37.55 points, or 0.34 percent, to 10,809.60.
Other gainers included Adani Ports, ICICI Bank, Tata Motors, Axis Bank IndusInd Bank, Asian Paints, Hero MotoCorp, L&T, TCS, Tata Steel and Bharti Airtel, rising by up to 2.05 percent.
The sentiment was largely buoyed by continued pumping of funds into markets by domestic institutional investors (DIIs) amid a mixed trend at other Asian markets.
