Shares of Maruti Suzuki India today rose by over 3 per cent to touch a one-year high level after the company said it will increase the prices of its vehicles across all models by up to Rs 20,000 from January.

After making a bullish opening, shares of the country’s largest car maker rallied 3.54 per cent to a one-year high of Rs 1,533.75 as the trade progressed on the BSE.

On NSE, the scrip gained 3.56 per cent to Rs 1,535.40 --its 52-week high level.

The scrip was the top performer among the 30-Sensex blue-chip companies during the morning trade.

“We expect the price increase to slightly offset the negative impact of foreign exchange movement on the operating margins of the company,” Angel Broking said in a report.

The company has said price hike has been necessitated due to increasing pressure on the margins due to the currency fluctuation. Meanwhile, buying was also seen on other auto counters. Tata Motors was trading 2.14 per cent higher, while Mahindra & Mahindra rose by 1.43 per cent.

With the foreign secretary level talks between India and Pakistan being iced due to the meeting between Kashmiri separatists and the Pakistani high commissioner, it may be worth recalling an episode from contemporaneous history.

As the old saying goes, “Can you say ‘boo’ to a goose?” Well, in India, we don’t waste our precious time booing geese. We reserve our boos for chief ministers. Each time the Prime Minister steps out to attend important functions in states that are still hanging on to their own non-BJP leaders (with time bombs ticking away), the crowds make sure nobody but Narendra Modi is heard.
