Indian markets remained flat with weaknesses witnessed in IT shares ahead of TCS yearly results. Meanwhile IT major Infosys and TCS both decline by 1-2 per cent.

Shares of Maruti Suzuki, the India's largest car maker, gained more than 1.5 percent after brokerage house Nomura says it maintains buy rating on the stock with increased target price to Rs 2,295 from Rs 2,135 earlier.

Nomura said Maruti embarks on its best ever phase of new model launches with 14 new models over 2014-18 and many of these in new segments for the company, such as compact SUVs, crossovers, higher-end sedans and LCVs. Thus, growth visibility is high, it adds.
