With sustained selling pressures, Indian stock markets continued to move southwards in the last two trading hours. Sectoral indices are trading mixed with realty and capital goods leading the gains while PSU, banking and oil and gas sectors are leading the losses.

According to a leading financial daily, Biotechnology major Biocon plans to spend 10% of its annual biopharma revenue on research and development in the next fiscal year. The company, which is pursuing R&D in both novel biologics as well as biosimilars (generic versions of biologic drugs), in various stages of trials, had spent around Rs 1.31bn on R&D in the previous fiscal year which was 6% of the biopharma sales. The stock opened at Rs 415 and is trading up by 2.34% on BSE.
