New Delhi: Shares of state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) on Monday surged more than 6 per cent on the bourses, following the acquisition of 51.11 per cent stake in oil refiner HPCL.

HPCL, however, dropped 4 per cent on the bourses. On January 20, ONGC announced the acquisition of government's entire 51.11 per cent stake in oil refiner HPCL for Rs 36,915 crore, paying a premium of over 10 per cent.
