Creating a Function Based Index

When I tried creating a Function Based Index, I encounted the error "ORA-01031 Insufficient privilege." I even granted the create any view. Please help me.

In order to create a Function Based Index on your tables, you must be granted the QUERY REWRITE privilege. To create Function Based Indexes on other schema's tables, you need the GLOBAL QUERY REWRITE privilege. Ask your DBA to grant the appropriate privilege to your account.
