The Nifty IT index and automobile index were down 1.1% and 0.5%, respectively.

Broader Asian equities also fell on Friday, following sharp losses overnight in U.S. stocks over fears of aggressive tightening by the Federal Reserve in the face of warnings of a global recession from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Rating agency Fitch earlier this week cut India’s gross domestic product growth forecast for the current fiscal year to 7% from 7.8%, in the backdrop of a slowdown triggered by global economic stress, elevated inflation and tighter monetary policy.
