“The exit poll numbers are very strong for the incumbent government,” Narendra Solanki, Head Fundamental Research – Investment Services, Anand Rathi Shares and Stock Brokers, said.

“Overall it’s positive for the markets in short as well as long term. Also, the recent released good GDP growth data should provide support to existing positive momentum,” he added.

India’s economy grew by 8.2% in the fiscal year that ended in March, cementing the country’s position as the fastest-growing major economy in the world.

“The GDP numbers which came on Friday were better-than-expected with 8.2% growth. This will provide fundamental support to the market,” said V. K. Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services.
