The Nifty PSE Index, heavily influenced by NTPC Ltd and Power Grid Corporation—holding weightages of 14.08% and 11.38% respectively—fell over 5%. The decline in these stocks was a key factor in the overall downturn of the index. Additionally, Power Finance Corporation and Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd saw their shares decrease by 6-7%, while NHPC Ltd experienced the steepest drop in the index at nearly 8%.

Other prominent public sector units like LIC, SAIL, BHEL, and REC also faced adverse impacts, with their share prices dropping more than 5%.
