Indian shares closed sharply higher in a glitch-ridden, extended session on Wednesday, led by gains in financial stocks after private-sector lenders were allowed to carry out government transactions. The NSE Nifty 50 index ended 1.86% higher at 14,982.00, while the S&P BSE Sensex rose 2.07% to 50,781.69. The top three boosts to the Nifty 50 were financial and banking stocks, which surged in extended trading, pushing the Nifty private bank index higher by 3.9%.
Indian shares ended nearly flat on Tuesday as gains in Reliance and commodity firms were offset by a selloff in financial stocks. The NSE Nifty 50 index ended 0.22% higher at 14,707.70 and the S&P BSE Sensex closed 0.01% higher at 49,751.41. Both the indexes snapped five sessions of losses to advance 1.2% during the session, before paring gains as investors sold private sector bank stocks.
Reliance, which operates the world's biggest refining complex, is in talks with Saudi Aramco to sell a fifth of its O2C business. "Reorganization of O2C Business facilitates participation by strategic investors and marquee sector focused investors," the oil-to-telecom conglomerate said in a presentation to investors. The new entity, Reliance O2C Ltd, will subsume Reliance's investment in oil refining, marketing and petrochemical business.
