Among the gainers, Tata Consultancy Services climbed 2.83 percent, Tata Motors jumped 2.55 percent, Tata Coffee rose 0.98 percent, Tata Global Beverages 0.67 percent, Tata Steel 0.48 percent, Tata Metaliks gained marginally 0.17 percent, Titan Company 0.07 percent and Tata Communications 0.01 percent on the BSE.

In contrast, Indian Hotels Company fell 2.03 percent, Tata Elxsi went lower by 1.40 percent and Tata Investment Corporation declined 0.43 percent.

Various group scrips had fallen up to 4 percent in the previous trade after the order.

In a big win for Cyrus Mistry, a company law appeals court on Wednesday restored him as executive chairman of Tata Sons and ruled that appointment of N Chandrasekaran as head of the holding company of over $110 billion salt-to-software conglomerate was illegal.

It, however, stayed the operation of the order with respect to reinstatement for four weeks to allow Tatas to appeal.

Mistry, scion of the wealthy Shapoorji Pallonji family, had in December 2012 succeeded Ratan Tata as the Executive Chairman of Tata Sons, a post that also made him the head of all Tata group listed firms such as Tata Power and Tata Motors.

In an overnight coup, he was removed as the Chairman of Tata Sons in October 2016.
