Dec 1 (Reuters) - Indian shares snapped four straight
sessions of gains to close lower on Thursday, with lenders such
as ICICI Bank leading the decline amid growing worries
about the impact of demonetisation on economic growth.
The broader NSE index ended down 0.38 percent at
8,192.90, while the benchmark BSE index closed 0.35
percent lower at 26,559.92.
Data on Thursday showed Indian factory activity decelerated
sharply last month as demonetisation led to a rationing of cash
and cooled domestic consumption, new orders and production.
