Outperforming benchmarks, broader market indices Nifty midcap and smallcap gained around half per cent each.
Nifty oil & gas ended with around four per cent cut after the Commerce Ministry announced additional excise duty on petroleum products. However, all other Nifty sectoral indices made a recovery to settle in the green. The recovery was led by FMCG, Realty and Pharma stocks.
Unfavorable cues from the domestic market led to a weak start due to weakness in the rupee and selling in oil refineries as the government imposed an additional export duty on petrol and diesel, said. “Adding to the weakness, India’s factory output growth slowed down during June, as high inflation continued to dampen demand,” the expert said.
