Sensex, Nifty choppy; M&M, ONGC top gainers

Indian benchmarks have recovered losses in late morning deals, backed by banks, FMCG and auto stocks. Traders remained on sidelines ahead of GST Council meeting, slated later during the week which is expected to consider lowering of the 28 percent GST rate on certain common use items. However, losses remained capped, as some solace came with report that government could consider a proposal to stagger deadlines for filing of monthly returns under the Goods and Services Tax for small and large firms. The move would ensure that the rush towards the last few days gets partly dissipated and leads to lower burden on the IT systems as well that often leads to large delays in uploading of returns and invoices.
