Today's drop was not restricted only to public sector banks, but, many private sector banks were also sharply lower led by losses in ICICI Bank, IndusInd Bank, Kotak Bank and Yes Bank.

The sustained selling was on the back of worries that non performing assets may continue to deteriorate if conditions in the steel industry get worse. It maybe noted that the steel industry has been adversely affected by the slump in prices amidst waning demand from China.

The worry is that this could result in losses and also a rise in non performing assets, particularly of PSU banks. Another reason for the fall is drop in interest rates by HDFC Bank, which many believe may trigger a rate war in the banking sector and a squeeze on margins.
