Sensex advances on plan to sell shares in state-run firm Nov. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Indian stocks advanced, led by Steel Authority of India Ltd. and Oil & Natural Gas Corp., after the government said it will sell shares in state-run companies and increase the price of gas.

The Ministry of Finance is in talks with the steel and coal ministries to sell stakes in Steel Authority and Coal India Ltd., Sunil Mitra, secretary for asset sales at the finance ministry, said in New Delhi today.

Oil India Ltd., the nation’s second-biggest state-owned energy explorer, climbed 1 percent to 1,194.45 rupees.

India’s economy may grow 6.2 percent in the year ending March 31, the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy, a Mumbai- based research group, said in a statement. The group had in October forecast expansion of 6 percent. Maruti Suzuki India Ltd., the nation’s biggest carmaker, increased 3.9 percent to 1,478.35 rupees.
