    Banking stocks ended the day flat, with most stocks like ICICI Bank and Axis Bank moving in a narrow range through the day. Federal Bank was the exception though as the stock surged a huge 4 per cent.

    IT stocks also had a quiet session with marginal gains seen in Infosys and TCS. Ramky Infra shares gained 20 per cent on reports that company intends to monetise operational road assets.
