The Sensex and the Nifty50 recovered much of their intraday losses in a volatile session on Monday. TCS shares led a recover in the market ahead of the IT major's financial results due later in the day.

Indian equity benchmarks recovered most of their intraday losses in a volatile session following a gap-down start on Monday, led by a rebound in IT shares as investors awaited Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to kick off the corporate earnings season later in the day. Globally, investors remained on the back foot amid fears steep hikes in interest rates will hamper economic growth.

"The fear of an aggressive rate hike by the Fed, on the back of strong employment data in the US, disrupted the global equity trend. Inflation in the US is forecast to stay high given the low supply and high demand scenario... The Fed will have to target to lower demand by increasing the unemployment rate," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
"Rising crude prices and a depreciating rupee are increasing the risk of imported inflation in India, affecting the domestic market," he added.
TCS shares closed 1.9 percent higher at Rs 3,124 apiece on NSE.
The rupee ended flat at 82.32 against the US dollar, having hit a lifetime low of 82.64 during the session.
