Sensex, Nifty rise for fourth day; Maruti Suzuki falls on output worries | Reuters

MUMBAI Indian stock markets rose on Monday, posting their fourth consecutive day of gains, as a recovery in the prices of crude oil and other commodities lifted stocks such as Reliance Industries and Oil and Natural Gas Corp.

Maruti Suzuki however fell 1.6 percent to their lowest level in more than a week after the auto maker suspended production in Haryana, amid protests by the Jat community over a lack of job prospects.

The broader Nifty rose 0.33 percent to 7,234.55, not far from the session's high of 7,252.40. The benchmark BSE Sensex rose 0.34 percent to close at 23,788.79.
