India's NSE midcap index rises as much as 1.3 percent to a second consecutive record high on hopes the rally in shares sparked by the election outcomes would lead domestic and foreign institutions broaden their portfolios into riskier plays.

Domestic-oriented midcaps lead, just as with blue chips, given hopes the Bharatiya Janata Party and Narendra Modi will kickstart economic growth with major reforms.

Ramco Cements surges 5.1 percent, Union Bank is up 4.5 percent and Max India gains 9 percent.
