The economically significant state of Maharashtra, home to Mumbai, entered a coronavirus lockdown and nationwide infections hit a new daily record of more than 200,000 on Thursday.

The NSE Nifty 50 index was up 0.29% at 14,546.45 by 0350 GMT, while the S&P BSE Sensex was 0.18% higher at 48,628.47.

Software services giant Infosys slid 4% after its March-quarter profit missed market expectations.

Metals shares, the biggest sectoral gainers this year amid a rise in commodity prices, added 2.76%.
