Shriram Finance shares surge by 4% in early trading on February 29 after inclusion in the Nifty 50 post index rejig.

UPL Ltd, the replaced stock, declines by 2%. NSE announces Shriram Finance's inclusion in Nifty 50 due to the highest 6-month average free-float market capitalization within the eligible universe, replacing UPL. Changes effective from March 28.
