Indian equity benchmarks have hit record highs in three straight sessions through Monday, but volatility remains high ahead of the results of the general elections, due on June 4. The Nifty volatility index rose to its highest in nearly two years on Monday.

"We may see further consolidation in the index ahead," Ajit Mishra, vice president of research at Religare Broking said.

Meanwhile, investors eye LIC after it reported a drop in its new business margin in the fourth-quarter, which the company said was curtailed by weakness in its group business. Its profit rose slightly.

Foreign investors were net sellers on Monday, offloading shares worth 5.41 billion rupees ($65.1 million), while domestic institutional investors bought 9.23 billion rupees in stocks.
