EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

Stock market updates: Indian Equities declined in-line with Asian peers on Friday as rapidly spreading Delta variant of Covid-19 in the region fanned fears of a stalled growth. That apart, Washington's call to add at least 10 Chinese entities to its economic blacklist over alleged human rights abuses and high-tech surveillance in Xinjiang pulled benchmarks in Japan, South Korea, and China down by up to 1 per cent. 

Back home, the S&P BSE dropped 183 points, or 0.35 per cent, to settle at 52,386 levels while NSE's 50-share benchmark declined 38 points, or 0.24 per cent, to close at 15,690 levels. Heavyweights, TCS, HDFC Bank, Reliance Industries, Axis Bank, Kotak Bank, and HDFC were the top laggards along with Wipro, Bajaj Auto, and M&M.

The broader markets, on the flipside, settled about half a per cent higher. Sectorally, the Nifty Private Bank index was the biggest drag, down 0.6 per cent. On the upside, the Nifty Realty index zoomed 2.4 per cent.
