Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], September 13 (ANI): Equity benchmark indices wobbled in the negative terrain during early hours on Monday with banking stocks under selling pressure.

At 10:15 am, the BSE S&P Sensex was down by 345 points or 0.59 per cent at 57,960 while the Nifty 50 dipped by 97 points or 0.56 per cent to 17,273.

Many sectoral indices were in the red with Nifty private bank down by 0.5 per cent, PSU bank and pharma by 0.3 per cent each and financial service by 0.2 per cent. But Nifty metal rose by 0.6 per cent.

Among stocks, index heavyweight Reliance Industries lost by 2.2 per cent to Rs 2,371.90 per share as subsidiary Jio delayed the launch of ultra low-cost smartphone.

Meanwhile, Asian shares made a sluggish start to a week packed with major US and Chinese economic data. MSCI's broadest index of Asia Pacific shares outside Japan eased 0.7 per cent after bouncing on Friday.
