 “Recent uncertainty surrounding the scheduled GST rollout on July 1, 2017, had pushed some investors in the corner. However, a GST council meeting over the weekend has reportedly addressed certain nagging issues and has put to rest speculation over a possible delay in the GST rollout. Investors responded to this update with cheer, which is evident in the positive activity that markets witnessed on Monday,” BNP Paribas Mutual Fund senior fund manager- equities Karthikraj Lakshmanan said.

 Tata Steel was the top gainer on Nifty 50, ending up 3.68% at Rs 520.40 with volumes of over 95.93 lakh. Some of the other gainers included Hindalco, Adani Ports, Vedanta, Bosch, Larsen & Toubro, Axis Bank and Power Grid. As far as losers are concerned, Dr Reddy’s topped the list ending down 1.25% at Rs 2649.
