Nestle India, Indiabulls Housing, Piramal Enterprises, IndiGo and sugar scrips were among the key stocks in news today.

Nestle India, Indiabulls Housing: Nestle India Ltd shares rise 3% as NSE will include the stock in the Nifty 50 index from 27 September and will remove Indiabulls Housing Finance, whose shares consequently decline 8%.

IndiGo: Shares of InterGlobe Aviation Ltd, the operator of India’s largest airline IndiGo, fall 1% even as the airline approved alteration in Articles of Association of the company as a special resolution. Meleveetil Damodaran is appointed as independent director and Anil Parashar as non-executive director.

L&T Finance Holdings: L&T Finance Holdings Ltd shares gain 1.5% as IIFL Wealth Group is set to acquire the company’s wealth management business.

Sugar stocks: Sugar stocks jump after the Cabinet approved export subsidy for exporting 6 million tonnes of sugar. Sugar export subsidy will go directly to farmer accounts. Dharani Sugars and Chemicals is up over 10%, Mawana Sugars 5%, Shree Renuka Sugars 4.6% and Sakthi Sugars 4%.

Lakshmi Vilas Bank: Lakshmi Vilas Bank Ltd shares drop 5% after Parthasarathi Mukherjee resigned as managing director and chief executive officer of the bank. The lender also approved raising up to Rs 500 crore via debt and equity.

CG Power: CG Power and Industrial Solutions Ltd are trading up 5% after the company clarified that it is evaluating divestments of non-core assets and considering other fund-raising avenues to bridge the cash flow gaps as well as to fulfil working capital requirements.
