Sensex Sheds 410 Points, Nifty Ends Below 17,750; Oil & Gas and Power Stocks Outperform
Tue, 28 Sep Closing

Indian share markets witnessed negative trading activity throughout the day today and ended lower.

After a sharp selling pressure hit the benchmark indices in afternoon session, pushing them over 1% lower, recovery was visible as investors lapped up stocks at lower levels.

Negative global market cues and profit taking pushed both Sensex and Nifty lower for the first time in four days.

Rise in US bond yield and crude oil price along with the Chinese crisis acted as key headwinds to the ongoing rally in the global market.

At the closing bell, the BSE Sensex stood lower by 400 points (down 0.7%).

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty closed lower by 107 points (down 0.6%).

Power Grid Corp and Coal India were among the top gainers today.

The Rebirth of India

India's leading research analyst, Tanushree Banerjee, will show our readers how an upcoming mega shift would drastically change the state of the Indian economy...

And how investing in three high-potential stocks at the heart of this rebirth...

...could potentially hand them 100%, 300%, 500%, even 1,000% or more in the long run.

Since you are one of our valued readers, we sincerely urge you to head over here for more details

NTPC has won 1.9 GW in the auction of CPSU Scheme-II, Tranche-III of 5 GW. However, company has no material information to add to above mentioned news item which is in the normal course of business of the company.

Indian power sector is evolving at a fast pace and the power demand is increasing rapidly. India recently witnessed all-time high peak demand of 200.6 GW and energy met of 4,508 megaunits (Mus) in a day on 7 July 2021. The country also registered a generation growth of 17.17% in the quarter one of 2022.

The growth in demand augurs well for the company. These numbers coupled with 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' initiative indicate that there is huge potential for growth in the power sector going forward.

NTPC is a market leader in power generation, supplying around 23% of the country's electricity supply and thus plays a key role in India's economic activity.

NTPC share price ended the day up by 3.5% on the BSE.

Speaking of the power sector, it's interesting to note the power exchanged in India is about 4.5% of the overall power production, as can be seen in the chart below.

As per Tanushree Banerjee, Co-Head of Research at Equitymaster, India's power sector is currently in transition. It's driven by increasing reliance on short-term contracts and electricity spot markets.

This transition to the short-term market is happening due to quickly evolving industry dynamics.

Tanushree believes the Indian power sector will see a surge in spot power volumes due to certain factors.
