The 30-share Sensex plunged by over 600 points on Thursday hours after early gains. The BSE Sensex had dropped by 610 points and was trading at 65,508 when the markets closed.

At the BSE, Hindustan Oil Exploration Co. Ltd was the biggest gainer with shares up by 9.98 per cent. The other gainers included MCX (+8.38%), MapMyIndia (+7.15%), Syrma (+7.25 %) and Fincables (+7.67%)

The big losers in the Sensex lot included Berger Paints, Voltamp Transformers Ltd, EKI Energy Services Ltd, Hindustan Zinc Ltd and Indian Bank. The National Stock Exchange (NSE) was trading at 19,512.45.

The markets had begun on a positive note on Thursday, but later gave up the gains to trade lower amid muted global trends. The Sensex had climbed 287.32 points to 66,406.01 in early deals. The Nifty advanced 50.2 points to 19,766.65.

The BSE benchmark had climbed 173.22 points or 0.26 per cent to settle at 66,118.69 on Wednesday. The Nifty gained 51.75 points or 0.26 per cent to end at 19,716.45.
