The Nifty50 is likely to open flat on Monday following muted trend seen in other Asian markets. The index closed 111 points higher at 11,278 on Friday.

Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a positive opening for the broader index in India, a gain of 10 points or 0.09 percent. Nifty futures were trading around 11,327- level on the Singaporean Exchange.
