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.
