BSE Sensex up on RIL shares as report hints AT&T Inc link with Reliance Jio Info
* India's RIL (Reliance Industries) shares gain 0.4 percent after Bank of America-Merrill Lynch upgrades the stock to "neutral" from "underperform", citing increasing evidence of an improving refining outlook and an expected earnings growth recovery.
* Reliance shares also gain on a report that AT&T Inc is looking to buy a more than 25 percent in telecom unit Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd, without citing where it obtained the information. However, AT&T has been linked with various Indian telecom companies in the past.
* Oil and Natural Gas Corp Ltd is up 0.4 percent, extending recent gains, after the government on Friday sought parliament's approval to spend an additional 247.74 billion rupees on oil subsidies in the current fiscal year that ends in March.
* However, shares in India's Larsen & Toubro Ltd fall 1 percent on Monday after World Bank barred the company from participating in any of the organisation's projects for six months.
