NEW DELHI: The benchmark equity indices Sensex and Nifty opened on a negative note on Tuesday ahead of the kickstart of two-day RBI policy review.
At 9.25 am, the 30-share Sensex was trading 58.87 points, or 0.18 per cent, lower at 32,810. The index was up over 150 points in the morning trade. The NSE barometer Nifty50 index was trading 15.50 points, or 0.15 per cent, lower at 10,112.25 around the same time. Investor sentiment was weak after Fitch Ratings pared India’s growth forecast for this financial year to 6.7 per cent from 6.9 per cent estimated earlier citing lower-than-expected recovery in the second quarter. For 2018-19, the credit rating agency has cut the forecast to 7.3 per cent from 7.4 per cent.
