BENGALURU (Reuters) - Indian shares jumped over 2% on Monday to their highest close in more than two weeks, as a slew of government measures to revive economic growth and hopes of progress in Sino-U.S. trade talks helped boost sentiment.

The broader NSE Nifty closed 2.11% higher at 11,057.85, while the benchmark BSE Sensex settled up 2.16% at 37,494.12.

Thirty-nine stocks of the NSE index’s 50 constituents finished the day in positive territory.
