On Thursday, the BJP was seen coming back to power at the Centre with the NDA led by it getting around 350 seats and the saffron party itself getting over 300 seats.
Analysts have said that after the election euphoria is over, markets will start focusing on the US-China trade tension and rising oil prices.
Besides, investors will also look for policy measures to kick-start the slowing economy.
"Of particular importance from a credit perspective will be the extent of the next government's efforts to improve India's weak fiscal finances," Fitch Ratings said.
"Fiscal consolidation stalled under the BJP in recent years, and its campaign promise to support farmers' incomes has added to spending pressure."
The FIIs were also net buyers on Thursday. They bought shares worth Rs 1,352.20 crore.
