Mumbai, June 19 - Cheered by positive global cues and healthy buying in index heavyweights such as Tata Steel, Axis Bank and Reliance Industries, the 30-scrip Sensitive index (Sensex) of the BSE traded at new highs during the mid-afternoon trade session on Monday.

Besides, the wider NSE Nifty banking index touched a fresh high of 23,806.65 points during intra-day trade as investors' sentiments were buoyed on reports that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will review the measures taken by the RBI to resolve the non-performing assets (NPA) issue of Indian state-run banks.

The S&P BSE banking index too traded with gains of 294.35 points or 1.10 per cent.
