Last Updated: Fri, Apr 04, 2014 12:50 hrs



The benchmark BSE index ended down 0.66 percent and the broader NSE index falls 0.62 percent posting its biggest fall in a month and continuing to retreat from the record high hit in the previous session as investors pared positions in blue chips such as Reliance Industries.



India's benchmark 10-year bond yield ended up 6 basis points at 9.07 percent, posting their biggest weekly increase since early November after the central bank's first debt auction of the new fiscal year was under-subscribed for one of the tranches, setting off concerns about weak demand.



The Indian rupee ended stronger at 60.08/09 per dollar versus its previous close of 60.1650/60.1750, after trading weaker for most part of the session on the back of a retreat in domestic shares from record highs and caution ahead of the U.S. monthly jobs data.



The benchmark five-year rate ended up 1 basis point at 8.61 percent, while the one-year rate closed unchanged at 8.65 percent.



India's cash rate ended at 7.00/7.10 versus its previous close of 7.00/7.05 percent.
