A maturing market amid the mayhem
Oil & gas index dragged lower by RIL
The BSE Oil & Gas Index closed as the top sectoral loser on Wednesday, falling 1.92 percent mainly on losses in Reliance Industries which saw brokerage downgrades.
Shares of Reliance Industries fell 3 percent after brokerages such as Edelweiss, Motilal Oswal and IIFL downgraded the firm saying the company would take longer to increase gas production at the KG-D6 block.
Other losers in the index were Reliance Natural, which fell nearly 1 percent, and GAIL which slipped 0.8 percent.
Prominent among those that bucked the downtrend was Aban Offshore, which jumped nearly 9 percent after the company said it had received a major portion of the $235 million insurance claim for its semi-submersible rig.
