Blue-chips that saw dip in their market value include Coal India Ltd (CIL), Infosys, NTPC, Bharti Airtel, SBI and HDFC Bank.
Defying the trend, corporate bellwether RIL, IT giant TCS, state-owned ONGC and FMCG honcho ITC saw rise in their market wealth among the BSE top-10 during the period.

ONGC saw its market wealth swell by Rs 9,796 crore to Rs 2,23,768 crore and ITC added Rs 6,543 crore taking its valuation to Rs 1,58,826 crore.
