Retail Inflation, BSE Sensex, Greece bailout deal, Vyapam scam, more

Indian market gave the Greece deal a big thumbs-up with the benchmark BSE Sensex rising 300 points for the second day to 27,961.19 -- its biggest single-day gain in three weeks -- driven by across-the-board buying activity and tracking upbeat global stocks. Profit-booking at improved levels dragged it down below the 28,000-mark, which settled at 27,961.19, a rally of 299.79 points, or 1.08 per cent, its biggest single-session gain since June 22 when it had rallied 414.04 points.
The 50-share Nifty recaptured the 8,400-level to hit a high of 8,471.65, before settling higher by 99.10 points, or 1.19 per cent, at 8,459.65.
