    Pharma stocks had an excellent day in trade with Sun Pharma surging a huge 8 per cent followed by Dr Reddy's and Cipla. Today's rally was largely on account of participation from heavyweight, ITC which jumped in trade. The other FMCG major, Hindustan Unilever also gained ground in trade.

    Shares in Hindalco which were hammered in the last two trading sessions recovered lost ground. Metal stocks saw some traction in trade today.

    Apart from Hindalco, Sesa Sterlite and Jindal Steel also gained ground. PSU banking stocks saw a good recovery led by State Bank of India and Punjab National Bank. The latter climbed after the government infused fresh funds into the bank. Bank of Baroda and Syndicate Bank also rallied in trade.

    Meanwhile, markets across Asia closed the day with losses following weak cues from the US markets. Indian markets would remain closed on Thursday and Friday on account of Mahavir Jayanthi and Good Friday.
