Shares of Greenlam Industries gained nearly 5.5 percent on Tuesday, registering its best single-day performance since May this year. The stock also ended higher for the third day in a row after Friday's 1.1 percent and Monday's 0.5 percent advance.
A large block deal took place on the stock in today's session where 1 percent of the company's equity exchanged hands. Sources within the dealing rooms tell CNBC-TV18 that a leading domestic mutual fund is likely to be the seller in this transaction.
