Shares in Tech Mahindra Ltd Ltd gain 1 per cent after the Reserve Bank of India late on Friday raised the company's foreign ownership limit to 45 per cent from 35 per cent for equity shares and convertible debt.

The RBI did not provide an explanation but it regularly prevents foreign institutional investors from buying shares in companies if they are approaching the limit stipulated by regulations and will then re-adjust once foreign ownership falls below the prescribed level.
