Mumbai: The benchmark Nifty gained 12.60 points to finish at 8,126.90, helped by buying in infra, FMCG, media, energy, auto and metal shares amid spells of volatility.
The market momentum was weighed down by selling in banking and financial stocks after RBI hiked CRR on incremental deposits which means banks need to pay additional interest that will impact their income.
Opening negative, the key index recouped immediately, moved in a range for the entire session amid volatility and closed with minor gains.
The 50-share Nifty saw a gap-down at 8,080.65, moved in range of 8,146.50 and 8,066.50 before ending at 8,126.90, a mild gain of 12.60 points, or 0.16 per cent, from its last close.
Overseas, most Asian markets rose as oil prices slid on unease about this week's meeting of Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) members to discuss possible output cuts. European markets were trading lower amid continued political uncertainty in Italy.
Stockwise, major gainers were Bharti Airtel (5.91 per cent), Zee (4.14 per cent), Tata Power (3.78 per cent), Bosch (3.01 per cent), Idea (2.92 per cent), Adani Ports (2.91 per cent) and ITC 2.14 (per cent).
