While the RBI did cut rates it said that the interest rates were frontloaded. This spooked the markets, though the interest rate cut was on expected lines.

IndusInd Bank and Canara Bank were the worst hit with both the stocks falling more than 2 per cent each.

Other banking stocks that declined were Yes Bank, State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, Bank of India and Axis Bank.

The RBI may not cut interest rates through the entire year which left analysts worried that banking stocks may see further downslide, especially since most of the banks are grappling with non performing assets, especially the PSBs.
