Asian stocks began the new quarter with mild gains after Wall Street surged on Thursday, ending a tumultuous first quarter on a high note. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.13 per cent.

The Nifty auto index gained as much as 2.27 per cent. Tata Motors rose 4.2 per cent, after posting a 35 per cent jump in March domestic vehicle sales. India’s largest automaker Maruti Suzuki India climbed 1.7 per cent after reporting a 14.9 per cent rise in March vehicle sales.

Meanwhile, ICICI Bank plunged 6 per cent to a five-month low after media reported its lending practices were the subject of a police investigation and after the central bank fined the lender for not sticking to certain rules around the sale of government securities.

The domestic investors will now look forward to the Reserve Bank of India's first bi-monthly policy decision of FY19 to be held later this week.
