On the sectoral front, power stocks, banking stocks, and finance stocks were among the hardest hit.

Metal stocks, on the other hand, witnessed huge buying interest. Metal stocks have been falling for quite some time now with Tata Steel, JSW Steel and Jindal Steel being the top losers.

Joint venture Rail Vikas Nigam (RVNL) - Bhartia has received a Letter of Acceptance from Northeast Frontier Railway for construction of single line BG tunnel. The total estimated cost of the project is Rs 5.6 bn.

While posting Q4 results, RVNL reported 1% fall in consolidated net profit at Rs 3.8 bn in the March quarter as compared to the same quarter last year.

In financial year 2022, the company recorded a 19.3% jump in net profit to Rs 11.8 bn on a 25.8% surge in net sales to Rs 193.8 bn over the previous fiscal.

India's GDP data

The Indian economy expanded at the slowest quarterly pace in a year as the impact of the Russian invasion of Ukraine rippled across the globe, sending raw material and energy prices soaring and weakening demand.

For the quarter ended March 2022, the economy grew 4.1%, the slowest pace in a year, official data showed.

As per the national statistical office's data, the economy expanded by 8.7% for the full year, slower than the government's second advance estimate of 8.9%.

The pace of growth was also partly due to a low base of the previous year when the economy contracted 6.6% because of the pandemic.

The GDP was just 1.4% higher than the pre-covid level during 2020 fiscal.

Nevertheless, India emerged as the fastest-growing major economy in the world in the financial year 2022.
