The Sensex ended the day with gains of 226 points, while the Nifty jumped 68 points in trade. Leading the set of gainers was Yes Bank whose shares jumped 13 per cent in two days, following comments by SBI Chairman, that the bank would not be allowed to fail.

"Yes Bank is a significant player in the market with an almost $40 billion balance sheet," State Bank of India, Chairman Rajnish Kumar told Bloomberg Television in Davos. "I have a feeling that it will not be allowed to fail," he added.
