Benchmark indices ended the day lower led by declines in heavyweight IT stocks like TCS and Infosys. Global cues which were poor, following a sharp slide in commodity prices, did not help sentiments. Reports that the US Fed was all geared to hike interest rates in the US in Dec, only added to the pain.
