HDFC, Axis Bank Lead The Surge

The early surge in the middle of the trading week is currently being piloted by major banking shares listed on the market. Particularly, it is the private lenders who are leaving a mark on Dalal Street in the early hours of the day.

After 10:00 IST, major banking stocks, including HDFC and ICICI, were rallying in green. In fact, HDFC Bank, the largest bank in the country, in terms of market capitalisation led the pack of private lenders with a massive 3.10 per cent or Rs 53.70, taking the cumulative value of each individual share to Rs 1,784.30. 

HDFC was followed by another private bank, namely Axis Bank, with a 1.84 per cent or Rs 23.10, taking the overall value to Rs 1,276.50 per share. One of the biggest banks in the country, ICICI bank also gained 1.23 per cent or Rs 14.70, taking the value of Rs 1,205.30 per share.

Kotak Bank, which was recently drawn into a controversy surrounding the Hindenburg-Adani fiasco, also did reasonably well with a 1.09 per cent or Rs 19.30 gain, taking the value to Rs 1,788.90 per share.
