A benchmark index for Indian equities on Tuesday pared its intra-day losses to close flat. Broader markets too closed on a lacklustre note.
The 30-share sensitive index (Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), which opened at 20,114.37 points, closed at 20,111.71 points (provisional), almost unchanged from its previous close at 20,117.38 points.
At the National Stock Exchange (NSE), the 50-share S&P CNX Nifty followed a similar trajectory to end trade at 6,034.5 points, compared to Monday's close at 6,035.65.
Broader markets also ended dull. The BSE midcap index closed 0.27 per cent higher and the BSE smallcap index nudged up 0.07 per cent.
