TCS which had dropped on Tuesday lost ground again and ended the day lower. The Bank Nifty which had rallied substantially in trade on Tuesday ended the day flat. However, gainers from the space were Kotak Mahindra and ICICI Bank.

Asian Paints, which declared its results on Tuesday continued to see selling pressure after its numbers failed to meet expectations.
