New Delhi: Kotak Mahindra surged 6.30 per cent on the NSE on Friday, after the company decided to acquire mid-sized lender ING Vysya Bank in an all-share transaction to strengthen its position ahead of entry of new players.

It was quoting at Rs 1,230, up 6.3 per cent, or Rs 72.95, at Rs 1,227.50 as against Rs 1,156.70 at close yesterday.
