MUMBAI: Ignoring the government's helping hand for exporters, the Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark index, Sensex, on Monday ended flat as investors remained cautious amid weak Asian cues.
The 30-share barometer of the BSE ended at 18409.35, marginally higher by 7.53 points. The index stayed in a narrow trading range and was unable to find any specific direction.
In a choppy session, the National Stock Exchange's wide- based 50-share Nifty index closed 0.23 per cent up at 5543.50.
The increase in ICICI Bank, ONGC, Infosys, Bharti Airtel and SBI was capped by the decline in Reliance Industries, ITC and HDFC. Barring FMCG, all the 13 sectoral indices of the BSE ended in the green, with the consumer durables sector leading the gains.
Shares of consumer durable, textile and export companies zoomed after the government extended sops worth Rs. 1,052 crore to these sectors. — PTI
