Fitch's warning to downgrade France and other six European countries hurt investors' sentiments driving equities down on both BSE and NSE.

The major sectors on the losing side were Consumer Goods (3.71%), Realty (3.19%), Bankex (3.09%), Power (1.70%) and PSU (1.67%).

On the National Stock Exchange (NSE), the top volume gainers were Tata Motors, Cairn, Sail, Coal India and Reliance, all gained by 4.06%, 3.95%, 3.08%, 2.18% and 2.03%, respectively.
