The Sensex logged its biggest single-day plunge in more than a decade on Saturday after the Budget failed to live up to market expectations.

 

Budget Day 2020, was the benchmark's biggest drop since October 24, 2008, when it had plummeted 1,070.63 points, and the fourth biggest fall overall.

On similar lines, the 50-share NSE Nifty plunged 300.25 points or 2.51 per cent to close at 11,661.85.
