Sept 22 (Reuters) - India's NSE index rose 1 percent on Thursday, its biggest daily percentage gain in more than two weeks, as the Federal Reserve's decision to leave U.S. interest rates unchanged led to a rally in stocks across the globe.

The broader 50-share NSE index rose 1.03 percent to 8,867.45, marking its biggest gain since Sept. 6.

The BSE index rose 0.93 percent to 28,773.13, its highest close since Sept. 9.
