Amir Kumar Gupta, portfolio manager at Adroit Financial Services Pvt.Ltd said, "US 10-year yields are now up to 1.72%, its highest since January last year and it is tough to ignore sentiment from the bond market which is spilling over to equity markets."

Private-sector lender ICICI Bank Ltd which was among the top boosts to the Nifty 50 earlier in the session, gave up gains to fall 1.4%.

State-run banks, which rose 1.92% earlier in the day were down 1.95% in afternoon trade.
