Mumbai: The BSE benchmark Sensex today breached 24,000 level for the first time on the optimism backed by exit polls forecast that shows a stable government led by the BJP coming to power at the Centre.

The benchmark index continued its record run for the third consecutive day today when it touched 23,997.77 points. This surpassed its previous record of 23,573 points hit Monday as the exit polls showed the BJP and its allies winning a majority in just-ended country's general elections.

All the sectors were trading in green. The rally was led by capital goods, banking, oil and gas, metal, consumer durables, auto and IT sectors.

The 30-scrip Sensitive Index of the S&P Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), which opened at 23,729.78 points, was trading at 23,966.03 points in the pre-noon session, up 415.03 points or 1.76 percent from the previous day's close at 23,551 points.

The Sensex touched a high of 23,997.77 points and a low of 23,729.25 points in trade.
