At the end of today's trade, the scrip however, gained some lost ground and was trading at Rs. 570.75, down 7.70% from its previous closing price.

In just a single day trading, the company lost a Rs. 412 crore from its market worth. At the end of today's trading, the stock's market capitalisation decreased to Rs. 4,927 crore, from Rs. 5,339 crore in the previous trading session (February 15).
