In the 30-share Sensex pack, HCL Technologies, Power Grid, NTPC, Mahindra & Mahindra, NTPC, Axis Bank, Wipro, Sun Pharma, Tech Mahindra, Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys and Kotak Mahindra Bank were among the biggest gainers.

On the other hand, Asian Paints and Bharti Airtel were trading lower. Elsewhere in Asia, markets in Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong were trading with losses.

The US markets ended on a mixed note on Tuesday.

The BSE benchmark had slumped 843.79 points or 1.46 per cent to settle at 57,147.32 on Tuesday. The Nifty fell 257.45 points or 1.49 per cent to end at 16,983.55.
