The BSE benchmark Sensex on Monday rebounded from the calendar year's lowest levels to close 33 points up at 19,501.08 on the back of buying in HDFC, L&T, HUL and SBI shares.
After two days of losses, the 30-share index touched an intra-day low of 19,462.92 but then progressed upwards to end at 19,501.08 -- a gain of 32.93 points, or 0.17 per cent.
Brokers said trading remained cautious ahead of Budget this month-end and reduced positions to pick up fundamentally strong scrips. While Tata Steel led 17 gainers in Sensex with 2.49 per cent rise, HDFC, L&T and HUL closed up in 1.5-1.9 per cent range. SBI, Bhel, Sterlite and Hero Moto also closed up.
"As we move towards Budget, investors might remain on sidelines to see the outcome and then decide the future course," said Nagji K Rita,CMD, Inventure Growth & Securities.
RIL gained after Telecom Commission approved provision for companies holding internet services licences with spectrum like Reliance Jio Infocomm (RJI) to provide phone call service by paying additional fee of Rs 1,658 crore each.
