Tata Consumer Products was the worst performer on the Nifty, falling 3.87 percent to 705.40. Among the laggards were L&T, HDFC Bank, Britannia, and HDFC Life.

Except for the Nifty PSU Bank, 14 of the NSE's 15 sub-indices finished in the red. On the NSE index, PowerGrid, ONGC, Tata Steel, NTPC, and SBI were among the gainers.

HDFC Bank, L&T, Bajaj Finance, Bajaj Finserv, Titan, Kotak Mahindra, and HDFC Bank suffered the greatest losses on the Sensex, with their shares falling as much as 3.65%. On the BSE, the overall market breadth was modest, with 1,412 shares rising and 2,098 falling.
