INDIAN BENCHMARKS: SENSEX RALLIES 130 POINTS, NIFTY 50 RECLAIMS 8200

The S&P BSE Sensex and the broader Nifty50 opened flat. The benchmark indices traded with a negative bias for most part of the day.
Investors were cautious ahead of the crucial Opec meet in Vienna which is expected to not yield any surprises.
