Shares of automobile manufacturers crashed at the bourses on Monday after reports said that the government intended to hike registration and renewal charges for internal combustion vehicles. The sector was also marred by the Goods and Services Tax (GST) council's decision to cut tax rate on electric vehicles from 12 per cent to 5 per cent.

Weak June quarter performance by corporates and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's comments that the government was not relooking at the FPI surcharge proposal dented investment sentiment.

The Sensex ended 196 points, or 0.52 per cent, lower at 37,686 levels pulled down by automobile manufacturers stocks. Tata Motors, Vedanta, Bajaj Auto, and Maruti were the top laggards at the close while ICICI Bank, IndusInd Bank, and HCL Tech ended the day as top gainers. On the other hand, Nifty50 gave up the psychological level of 11,200 mark to settle at 11,189 mark, down 95 points, or 0.84 per cent. The Sensex touched an intra-day low of 37,519 while the Nifty50 hit a low of 11,152.

In the broader market, S&P BSE MidCap ended 93 points, or 0.67 per cent, lower at 13,763 levels while the S&P BSE SmallCap closed 135 points, or 1.03 per cent, lower at 12,926 levels.
