Sensex up by 76.01 pts @ 20034.48 & Nifty close up by 21.80 pts @ 6030.80. The BSE
Sensex rose for a third consecutive session on Monday to mark its highest close in 1-1/2
months as optimism about upcoming earnings results and wholesale inflation data that
was in line with expectations boosted blue chips. India's headline inflation picked up for
the first time in five months in June, driven by higher food prices, adding to the economic
challenges facing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's government and reducing the odds
of an early national election.
