A maturing market amid the mayhem
Real estate index tops sectoral gainers
Tuesday turned out to be a good day for real estate counters, with the sectoral index rising 2.6 percent, and all but one component closing positive.
Shares in HDIL jumped nearly 5 percent to end as the top gainer in the index. Bigger players like DLF and Unitech rose nearly 3 percent each.
Shares in Parsvnath Developers, the only loser in the index, closed down 0.8 percent.
The sector is perceived to be sensitive to interest rate movements, and a deputy RBI governor today hinted that rates could be hiked.
