ICICI Bank and Axis Bank were also making handsome gains. The surge in PSU bank stocks had started on Tuesday itself in anticipation of announcements by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, with the PSU Bank sub-index gaining 3.79 per cent.

The government had on Tuesday announced an unprecedented Rs 2,11,000 crore plan for recapitalisation of the PSU banks in a bid to push growth and and create jobs. The package will be spread over two years, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said.

While Rs 1,35,00 crore will be in the form of front-loaded recapitalisation bonds, the remaining Rs 76,000 crore will be in the form of budgetary support.
