Shares in PSU Banks saw a rally in trade on hopes that recent comments by Finance minister Arun Jaitley would lead to fresh capital infusion in some of these banks.
This was largely to do with fresh capital infusion.
Shares in IDBI Bank rallied 3 per cent, while shares in Union Bank were up almost 2 per cent. Other notable winners from the space were PNB and State Bank of India.
Several of the PSB stocks have been hitting lows with Oriental Bank, Canara Bank and Punjab National Bank falling to recent lows.
