The Sensex fell 164 points on Thursday, owing to losses in index giants Infosys, HDFC twins, and Reliance Industries, as well as a negative trend in Asian peers. The 30-share BSE index finished at 52,318.60, down 164.11 points or 0.31 percent. Similarly, the NSE Nifty index fell 41.50 points, or 0.26 percent, to 15,680. With a loss of almost 2 percent, Bajaj Finserv led the Sensex pack, followed by Infosys, Tech Mahindra, UltraTech Cement, and IndusInd Bank.

Dr Reddy's, Bajaj Auto, Sun Pharma, Asian Paints, and NTPC, on the other side, were among the gainers. Strong June month dispatches reported by automakers boosted the car index's strong recovery, he said. Global market weakness, on the other hand, weighed on attitudes.

Shanghai, Seoul, and Tokyo bourses all concluded the day with losses. In mid-session trades, European equities were trading higher. Meanwhile, Brent crude, the worldwide benchmark, was trading 0.90 percent higher at USD 75.29 per barrel.
