Broader markets too fell further and the breadth deteriorated.

Infosys crashed 20 percent, its biggest fall since 2003, after delivering disastrous Q4 numbers and FY14 dollar revenue guidance of 6-10 percent, which is below Nasscom estimates.

Wipro, Cipla, Coal India, TCS and M&M were the big losers of the day.

Meanwhile, Eveready rallied on the back of battery price hike. The company has hiked prices by Rs 5 per strip of 10 batteries. Speaking to CNBC-TV18 the management said that price increase will be implemented in one-two months and will not impact demand.

Other gainers in the Sensex were ITC, SBI, Hindalco, Bajaj Auto and HUL.
