Reliance Industries Ltd. jumped supporting the Indian equities benchmark’s best gain in seven weeks even as most shares dropped Friday, paced by a plunge in the nation’s top drugmaker.

The S&P BSE Sensex rose less than 0.1 percent to 36,386.61 at the 3:30 p.m. close in Mumbai, fluctuating between a gain of 0.3 percent and a drop of 0.4 percent. The NSE Nifty 50 Index was little changed at 10,906.95. Both gauges advanced 1 percent this week.
