About five shares declined for every share rising on the exchange. Meanwhile, bringing some relief for banks and non-banking finance companies (NBFCs) from demonetisation, the Reserve Bank of India today relaxed certain asset classification and provisioning norms in certain cases.

The central bank has decided to allow banks 60 more days for recognition of loans as standard in certain cases. The revised norm is applicable for loans payable between November 1 and December 31. Banks were hit hardest with the Nifty Bank index falling 2.7 percent and PSU Bank down 6.9 percent. Similarly, Bank of Baroda, PNB, SBI, Canara Bank, Allahabad Bank, OBC and Union Bank plunged 5-9 percent. HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Axis Bank fell over a percent.

Stocks to Watch: TCS is on up side while Hindalco is on down side.
