Fertilizer stocks were in the limelight in an otherwise dull market on reports that the government had cleared the urea policy.

This could lead to fresh investments in the sector according to market analysts. Fertilizer and Chemicals Travancore surged almost 17% and was last trading at Rs 32.15, while Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilizers was up 3% at Rs 56.10. 

Other stocks that gained include Liberty Phosphate (up 6%) , Southern Petrochemicals Industries Corporation ( up 1.5%) and GNFC (up 3%).
