Sensex slumps 183 points post RBI policy announcement

Mumbai, May 3, 2013, (PTI) :

The BSE benchmark Sensex today fell over 183 points in late morning trade led by weakness in banking sector stocks, as RBI failed to meet market expectations with just 0.25 per cent cut in short-term lending rate and no change in the cash reserve ratio.

The 30-share index, which opened in negative zone, fell further by 183.22 points, or 0.92 per cent to trade at 19,552.55 at 1130 hrs, after RBI left the CRR unchanged at 4 per cent and announced just 0.25 per cent cut in key interest rate to 7.25 per cent.
Sensex had rallied by 449.23 points in the previous three sessions.

Similarly, the National Stock Exchange Nifty index Nifty fell by 69.20 points, or 1.15 per cent, to 5,930.15.

The fall was mostly led by interest rate sensitive stocks such as banking after the Reserve Bank did not cut the cash reserve ratio (CRR), brokers said.

The BSE banking index fell by 1.67 per cent to 14,288.64 points as stocks of state-run State Bank of India fell 2.51 per cent to Rs 2,241.65, Canara Bank by 3.32 per cent to Rs 398.35, ICICI Bank by 1.96 per cent to Rs 1,148.45, HDFC Bank by 1.26 per cent to Rs 683.45 and Axis Bank by 1.77 per cent to Rs 1,489.75.
