The Indian stock market ended around 0.5 per cent lower on Monday, mainly on selling in financial counters. Financial stocks took a beating after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in the bi-annual Financial Stability Report (FSR) released on Friday, said the gross NPA ratio of banks may increase from 8.5 per cent in March to 12.5 per cent by March 2021 under the baseline scenario, but it could worsen to as much as 14.7 per cent under a “very severely stressed scenario.
