cancel

Mumbai: The Sensex closed Friday's session with an unprecedented 5.32 per cent advance as Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman made yet another big ticket announcement to kick start the economy.

The benchmark indices logged the biggest ever gains in the history of trading in India as the government slashed the effective corporate tax rate to about 25 per cent from 30 per cent.

Sensex advanced by a massive 1921.15 points to 38,014.62 while the broader Nifty jumped to 11,275.45 after gaining 570.65 points or 5.33 per cent.

The biggest beneficiaries among the 30 Sensex stocks were HeroMoto Corp, Maruti Suzuki, IndusInd Bank, Bajaj Finance, State Bank of India and Bajaj Finance, which gained in the range of 9 to 12 per cent.

The badly beaten down auto stocks gained the most. Nifty auto jumped over 9.90 per cent while the Nifty banks index gained over 8 per cent.

"The announcements made by the Finance Minister is very positive for the economy, corporates and stock market. The effective tax after surcharges and cess will come down from 33 per cent to 25.17 per cent," said Rusmik Oza of Kotak Securities.
