BENGALURU: Indian shares gained for a third straight week to close at a one-month high on Friday as inflation concerns ebbed, while IT major Tata Consultancy Services slipped ahead of its quarterly earnings report.

The NSE Nifty 50 index ended 0.54% higher at 16,220.6, while the S&P BSE Sensex gained 0.56% to 54,481.84, advancing in line with Asian peers. The indexes were up about 3% for the week.

However, news that Japan’s former prime minister Shinzo Abe died after he was shot during a speech blunted gains in Asia. Investors also awaited key U.S. jobs data later in the day.

“The market was in oversold territory and we have positive news of a decisive downturn in commodity and crude prices, so that has helped the market bounce amid easing foreign investor selling,” said Gaurav Dua, head, capital market strategy at Sharekhan.

A mutual fund industry body said inflows in funds were likely to remain weak in the current quarter.

Easing inflation worries was a 6.25% drop in Brent crude this week up to Thursday’s close, while copper, a bellwether for economic output, shed 2.8% amid demand worries.

In Mumbai, construction major Larsen & Toubro was the top percentage gainer, jumping 4.7% to log its best day since February 2021.

The Nifty Energy index advanced 1%, with Adani Transmission and Power Grid each gaining 3%, while NTPC climbed 2.3%.

Tata Motors rose 2.5% to a more than five-week closing high. The automaker said global wholesales climbed 48% in the first quarter.

Indian sugar firms jumped after the government extended an export period for mills.
