Sensex, Nifty end at 2013 lows; Dr Reddy drops over 3 per cent

Mumbai: Key equity benchmarks ended trade in the red however off the day's low. The BSE Sensex closed down 61.97 points at 19435.21 after touching an intraday low of 19,381.82. The NSE 50-share Nifty ended trade flat at 5887.40, down 0.16 per cent. Both the indices are at their 2013 lows.

Dr Reddy's shares retreated a day after reporting a larger-than-expected fall in quarterly earnings, while software service exporters fell on profit-booking.

However, Tata Motors provisionally rose 2.5 per cent, recovering from an earlier fall of as much as 3.1 per cent, as traders saw initial losses - sparked by a drop in quarterly earnings - as overdone given expectations for a recovery in profits. Dr Reddy's Laboratories provisionally fell 3.2 per cent, while Infosys Ltd ended down 1.2 per cent.
