The top Nifty50 gainers of the day were Titan, Hindustan Unilever, Asian Paints, Maruti, and Eicher Motors, while the top losers were PowerGrid, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank, HDFC, and ONGC.

Heavy selling pressure on banks and financial services was reflected in a loss of 1.3–1.4 percent in the Nifty Bank, Financial Services, and Private Bank indices.
