In terms of individual stock movements, Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories, Apollo Hospitals, and Divi’s Laboratories were notable gainers, while Coal India, Hero Motocorp, and BPCL faced significant losses among the Nifty 50 constituents. Sectors like Information Technology (IT) and Pharmaceuticals performed relatively better, while Media, PSU Banks, Realty, and Energy sectors witnessed notable declines.
