Markets scale 32-month high; Mahindra Satyam down

Mumbai: Indian shares on Monday climbed more than 1% to scale a fresh 32-month high as economic data in the US bolstered sentiments across Asian markets.

IT firm Mahindra Satyam fell more than 9% after it said late Friday it would delist from the New York Stock Exchange in mid-October due to non-compliance as it would likely miss a deadline to restate results for fiscal year 2009.

At 9:04am, the 30-share BSE index was up 0.6% at 20,159.27 points.

The 50-share NSE index was at 6,048.65 points, up 0.5%.
