Sensex Falls Over 600 Points from Day's High; TCS & Reliance Industries Top Losers
Wed, 21 Oct 02:30 pm | Yash Vora, TM Team

Share markets in India gave up all of their early gains in the afternoon session, with the benchmark BSE Sensex dropping more than 600 points from the day's high.

Benchmark indices reversed trend and turned bearish by the afternoon session, amid weak opening in European markets.

European shares slipped as losses in defensive sectors outweighed optimism over encouraging quarterly results from consumer giant Nestle and telecoms equipment maker Ericsson.

Meanwhile, Indian market regulator's chairman Ajay Tyagi today said that every stakeholder needs to play significant role to reform the markets. He also urged independent directors leaving due to corporate governance to flag such issues.
