Thu, 1 Jan 01:30 pm

Indian share markets continued to remain depressed in the post-noon trading session. Sectoral indices are trading mixed with metal and consumer durables being major gainers. FMCG and banking stocks are the biggest losers today.

The slowdown has been across the board with the exception of construction, beverages & tobacco and mining & quarrying sectors. On the positive front, the credit offtake by agriculture and allied activities almost doubled to 20.2% in November 2014.
