Benchmark indices fell on Thursday, dragged by banking and financial stocks, ahead of the expiry of derivatives contracts and after the US Federal Reserve raised interest rates while retaining its view for three hikes this year.
Among sectoral indices, the Nifty PSU Bank index was trading over 2% lower led by a fall in the shares of State Bank of India and Syndicate Bank. The Nifty Realty index, too, slipped nearly 1% lower due to a fall in shares of Indiabulls Real Estate and Oberoi Realty.
In its first policy meeting under new Fed chief Jerome Powell, the US central bank indicated that inflation should finally move higher after years below its 2% target and that the economy had recently gained momentum.
The Fed also raised the estimated longer-term "neutral" rate, the level at which monetary policy neither boosts nor slows the economy, a touch, in a sign the current gradual rate hike cycle could go on longer than previously thought.
Globally, the US dollar was on the defensive on Thursday after posting its largest loss in two months when the Fed turned out to be less hawkish than anticipated.
