BSE: Top gainers and losers
India's benchmark share indices recorded their steepest fall since February 27, 2012 after comments by the US Fed that it would start pruning its monetary stimulus measures sooner-than-expected and weak China manufacturing data led to a sell off in global equities on Thursday.
The 30-share Sensex ended at 18,719 down 526 points or 2.74% and the 50-share Nifty ended at 5,656 down by 166 points or 2.86%.
The Sensex and the Nifty touched an intra-day low of 18,687 levels and 5,647 mark, respectively. On Feb 27, 2012, the Sensex had crashed 478 points or 2.66% to end at 17,446 and the Nifty had crashed 148 points or 2.8% at 5,281.
