Shares of TVS Motor Company fell 0.26 per cent to Rs 436.35.
Shares of Navin Fluorine soared on Tuesday after the company won a Rs 2,900 crore order from a global firm. IOL Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals continued its rally, jumping a further 5 per cent.

BSE flagship Sensex shed 82 points to 40,281 while NSE barometer Nifty dipped 32 points to 11,797. Broader market indices traded in line with their headline peers, as Nifty Smallcap and Nifty Midcap indices fell 0.21 per cent and 0.230 per cent, respectively.

Analysts expect the weak trend to continue in the market for a while. “Coronavirus is still rattling sentiment across the globe. On the domestic front, a weaker-than-expected GDP print for Q3FY20 —scheduled to be released on Friday — could further dampen investor confidence. We suggest a buy-on-dips approach in fundamentally sound stocks,” said Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking.

Here is a lowdown of the movers and shakers of Tuesday’s session on Dalal Street:
