On the other hand, Sun Pharma, Cipla, Tata Steel, Tata Motors and Jindal Steel arwe among the notable gainers.

Selling pressure is visible across the board. Realty and banking stocks are amongst the worst hit. The BSE realty index is the top sectoral loser, down nearly 2% or 35 points at 1,855. Bankex, power, capital goods, PSU, consumer durables, IT, oil & gas and autio indices are also down 0.4-1% each.
