Mumbai: Stocks got back into shape on Tuesday as the Sensex recovered 102 points to 31,198 in early session --chiefly buoyed by a cooling inflation -- amid mixed Asian cues.
Buying picked up on positive economic data after retail inflation fell to a record low of 2.18 per cent in May, from 2.99 per cent in April.
The 30-share barometer rebounded by 101.82 points, or 0.32 per cent, to 31,197.52. The gauge had lost 166.36 points in the previous session.
Sectoral indices such as healthcare, realty, capital goods, power and consumer durables looked good.
Sun Pharma, Lupin, GAIL, L&T, Axis Bank and Bajaj Auto, among others supported the upmove, which rose by up to 2.34 per cent.
The NSE index Nifty bounced 30.10 points, or 0.31 per cent, at 9,646.50.
Industrial production, however, grew at a slower rate of 3.1 per cent in April due to poor show by manufacturing, mining and power, coupled with a lower offtake of capital goods and consumer durables.
Hong Kong's Hang Seng rose 0.37 per cent and China's Shanghai Composite 0.12 per cent in early trade. Japan's Nikkei, however, shed 0.11 per cent.
The US Dow Jones Industrial Average had ended 0.17 per cent lower on Monday.
