(Reuters) - Indian shares posted a record closing high on Thursday as a rally in global markets boosted sentiment, while banking stocks led gains on hopes that the government would raise the foreign investment ceiling in lenders.

The broader NSE Nifty closed up 0.26 percent at 10,817.00, while the benchmark BSE Sensex ended 0.51 percent higher at 35,260.29.
