Among the early gainers today was infrastructure company IVRCL, which rallied on reports that the Essel Group had acquired more than a 10% stake in the company. The shares of Patni Computers was trading steady ahead of its delisting offer today.

Metal stocks like Hindalco, Sterlite Industries and Sesa Goa traded weak in early morning trades. Markets are expected to be remain range bound in the absence of any major policy decisions.
