Extending gains to the sixth straight day, benchmark indices edged higher taking cues from global markets as investors looked past the social unrest in the US and continued to focus on easing lockdown restrictions and prospects of economic recovery.

Optimism in the Indian market has been driven by positive sentiment across global markets as most of the economies are opening up after weeks of shutdown induced by coronavirus pandemic.

Note that shares of the company have rallied sharply in the past few days after the company on Friday said it was constantly evaluating various opportunities but there was no proposal before the board of the firm as yet.

The clarification came after reports surfaced that Alphabet Inc's Google was eyeing about 5% stake in the telecom company.

On Friday, Vodafone Idea said, "as part of the corporate strategy, the company constantly evaluates various opportunities for enhancing the stakeholders' value. As and when such proposals are considered by the board of directors of the company warranting disclosures, the company shall comply with the disclosure obligations."

In news from the auto ancillaries sector, automobile components major Motherson Sumi on Tuesday reported a 68.4% decline in its consolidated net profit at Rs 1,356.6 million for the fourth quarter ended March 31, mainly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The company had posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 4,293.1 million in the corresponding period of the previous financial year.

The company's total revenue from operations in Q4FY20 stood at Rs 151.6 billion as against Rs 171.7 billion a year ago.

For the financial year 2019-20, the company's consolidated net profit stood at Rs 12.9 billion. It was Rs 21 billion in 2018-19.

The company said that the overall performance was affected by OEMs' (original equipment manufacturers) plant closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, especially in China and in parts of Europe.

The company's Chairman Vivek Chaand Sehgal said, "our consolidated revenues for this fiscal year have remained stable. Considering that global automotive sales have declined in the same period and that the coronavirus pandemic was already impacting China and parts of Europe in the fourth quarter, this is a strong performance under the circumstances."

Motherson Sumi share price is presently trading up by 2%.

In other news, Tata Motors has resumed operations across all its manufacturing plants in the country with Jamshedpur facility also getting approval on May 27, 2020.

Reportedly, around 59% of company's passenger vehicle showrooms, covering 69% of the retail market, have commenced operations.
