BSE Sensex fell 1.7 per cent early on Monday, with Reliance Industries and Infosys Technologies leading the decline, as world stocks dropped on worries over euro zone debt concerns.

Reliance Communications, India's No 2 mobile phone operator, was down 2.4 per cent at 141.10 rupees even after reporting a smaller-than-expected 16 per cent fall in quarterly profit over the weekend.
