NEW DELHI: Hindalco Industries (Rs 130.78 crore), Tata Steel (Rs 130.41 crore) and Infosys (Rs 119.00 crore) were among the most active stocks in terms of value on NSE during the early trade on Tuesday.

Power Grid Corporation (Rs 111.68 crore), HDFC (Rs 98.17 crore), Tata Consultancy Services (Rs 96.33 crore), ICICI Bank (Rs 89.84 crore), Tata Motors (Rs 83.35 crore), Mahindra & Mahindra (Rs 77.69 crore), YES Bank (Rs 75.72 crore), Reliance Industries (Rs 69.15 crore) and State Bank of India (Rs 67.71 crore) were also among the most active stocks in terms of value on NSE.

Equity benchmarks extended their winning streak for the ninth session on Tuesday, with Sensex climbing nearly 100 points in the opening trade today, after the forecast of a normal monsoon for the year.

However, selling in heavyweights including Infosys, Maruti and Axis Bank cooled off bourses a bit.

The NSE Nifty index was trading 8 points up at 10,536, while the BSE Sensex was up 45 points at 34,350 around 09:55 am (IST).

Hindalco Industries, Power Grid Corporation of India, Tata Steel and Mahindra & Mahindra were the top gainers in the Nifty index.

On the other hand, Cipla, Infosys, Wipro, Bharti Infratel and Sun Pharmaceutical Industries were among the top drags on Nifty.
