The key benchmark indices registered small gains in what was a choppy trading session. Volatility rose during the last one hour of trade after reports filtered in that the government has tabled the much-awaited Direct Taxes Code bill (DTC) in the Lok Sabha, which proposes to raise the exemption limit on income tax from the current Rs 1.6 lakh to Rs 2 lakh. IT, realty and FMCG stocks fell. But, metal stocks rose. Capital goods reversed initial gains. Index heavyweight Reliance Industries (RIL), too, turned negative from positive. The BSE 30-share Sensex rose 33.70 points or 0.19%, off about 185 points from the day's high and up close to 70 points from the day's low.
