Investors said traders may wait for a correction in the market over the next few days before going forward.

On Thursday, profit booking dragged the stocks lower despite the mandate to Modi for pursuing business-friendly policies and taking decisive action on national security.

Meanwhile, most Asian stock indices were in the negative zone amid mounting concerns that trade dispute between the United States and China could cripple global growth.

Besides, investors resorted to safe-haven assets after factoring in bleak US factory data a day earlier.
