At the closing bell, the BSE Sensex stood lower by 568 points (down 1%).

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty closed lower by 153 points (down 0.9%).

Titan, Dr Reddy's Laboratories, and HUL, on the other hand, were among the top losers today.

The SGX Nifty was trading at 16,425, down by 157 points, at the time of writing.

The BSE MidCap index and the BSE SmallCap index ended down by 0.8% and 0.7%, respectively.

Barring the auto sector, all sectoral indices ended in the red with stocks in the IT sector, FMCG sector, and banking sector witnessed most of the selling.
