In Mumbai, losses were broad based, with all stocks on the Nifty trading lower.

The Nifty bank index .NSEBANK fell 2.3% after India's top court on Thursday directed banks not to declare any loans that were standard as of end-August as non-performing until further orders, raising uncertainty over recovery efforts. HDFC Bank Ltd HDBK.NS was among the top drags on the Nifty, falling 1.8%

Also dragging the Nifty was India's most valuable company, Reliance Industries Ltd RELI.NS , which fell 1.2%.
