Shares of smallcap companies were under pressure with the S&P BSE Smallcap index falling more than 1% after a sharp decline in stock prices of PVR, KNR Constructions, Inox Leisure and Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers & Chemicals (GNFC).

At 02:43 PM; the S&P BSE Smallcap index, the largest loser among broader indices, was down 1.3% or 215 points at 16,205. On comparison, the S&P BSE Sensex was trading 0.07% higher at 36,567 points.

The stocks of multiplex operator Inox Leisure (down 14% at Rs 217) and PVR (down 12% at Rs 1,224) have plunged more than 10% in intra-day trade after media reports suggested that Maharashtra minister raised a voice to act against multiplexes if they don't allow people to carry their own food inside the cinema halls.

The Maharashtra government has now allowed food inside movie theatres, from August 1, prices of food products will also reduce.

The government will hold meetings with multiplex owners and reduce prices as per market price, the TV channel report suggested. The move could hurt multiplexes operator.

The launch of the home broadband services is expected to intensify competition for both the direct-to-home as well as cable broadband providers.
