Other stocks also witness massive selling
Other stocks are also witnessing massive selling for the past few days. On Friday, Indian equity benchmark indices fell for the sixth straight day.
One of the reasons behind it is equity investors’ concerns. They are concerned about the persistent high inflation globally and the tightening monetary policy stance by several central banks.
India’s retail inflation accelerated to 7.79 percent in April due to high fuel and food costs. The inflation remained above the tolerance limit of the central bank for the fourth month in a row.
