Union Budget 2015-16: Market to remain open

Stock markets will open for regular trading hours on Saturday, February 28, when the government is due to unveil a much-anticipated budget for the fiscal year starting in April, the country's two main exchanges said on Friday.

The announcement from National Stock Exchange and BSE Ltd came after brokers had requested markets open on budget day, since trading volumes typically surge on the announcement of initiatives geared towards individual sectors.
