Engineers of Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) work inside the Kalol oil field in Gujarat Shares in Indian explorer Oil and Natural Gas Corp jumped as much as 5.1 per cent on Thursday, after the state-run firm received the government's approval for a stock split and bonus issue.
Oil Minister Murli Deora told Reuters the cabinet had approved issue of one free share to ONGC's stock holders for each share held, but did not say what the ratio was for stock split.
ONGC had proposed to the government to split each share into two ahead of a planned share sale in the company, Chairman R S Sharma said last month.
The shares are up about 12 per cent this year, compared with a 14 per cent rise in the main index.
ONGC expects its follow-on share sale to hit the markets in March, Sharma said on Wednesday. The government has approved a 5 per cent stake sale in ONGC that is expected to raise more than $3 billion.

India's top motorcycle maker, Hero Honda, has agreed to increase its royalty payments to Honda Motor Co to 8 per cent of annual sales in return for a technology makeover and a stake sale by the Japanese firm in the venture, Business Standard reported.

Under the proposed agreement Honda would supply the technology for three new products to Hero Honda, in addition to the existing product portfolio, it said.
The paper said a Hero Honda official declined comment.

Qantas said it had filed a claim in the Federal Court of Australia over the financial and commercial impact of the mid-air failure of a Roll-Royce engine on Nov. 4, which forced a Sydney-bound A380 to make an emergency landing in Singapore with 466 people on board.
\"Today's action allows Qantas to keep all options available to the company to recover losses, as a result of the grounding of the A380 fleet and the operational constraints currently imposed on A380 services,\" the airline said.
