Shares of (India) have recouped significant ground since the last week of December 2022. The stock has rallied nearly 36 per cent during this period.

The overall price structure on the weekly chart remains positive with the likelihood of the stock testing Rs 1,480 on the upside.

Meanwhile, the daily chart suggests that the bias is likely to remain positive as long as the stock sustains above Rs 1,310.
