BUZZ-India's ONGC gains on approval for HPCL stake buy

** Shares of Oil and Natural Gas Corp Ltd rise as much as 2.98 pct to highest since June 21

** Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd down as much as 5.2 pct

** India approved ONGC's plan to buy 51.1 pct stake in state-refiner Hindustan Petroleum, but deal terms yet to be finalised

** ONGC Chairman Dinesh K. Sarraf said the oil explorer would not be required to make an open offer to buy HPCL's shares from the market

** Consequently, hope of tendering shares at a premium has been dashed, a trader says

** ONGC shares on track to post fourth straight session of gains
