Monsoon rains, the main source of irrigation for India’s 235mn farmers, may cover the entire country in 24 hours, sooner than the usual July 15 date, the weather office said. Bumper crops stoke demand for vehicles, consumer goods and appliances. “Investors sought bargains after yesterday’s declines,” Jitendra Panda, head of sales broking at Mumbai-based Future Capital Holdings Ltd, said by phone. “The news on the monsoon too helped lift sentiment.” Stocks also rose as euro-area finance chiefs made progress on finalising Spain’s bailout.
