Mumbai: After a dismal show a year ago, the Indian stock market emerged as the third best performer globally in 2012, with a return of over 25 percent for a key index on the back of $24 billion foreign fund inflows and robust buying by domestic investors.

The 30-share sensitive index (Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) ranked third in terms of returns after the yields of the 50-scrip Thailand Set Index and Germany’s 30-share Deutscher Aktien IndeX.

The benchmark Indian index ended the year at 19,426.71 points, 25.70 percent or 3,971.79 points higher than the previous year’s close at 15,454.92 points. This is the best performance of the benchmark index since 2009.
