Leading software exporters Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Infosys tumbled after recording new highs earlier in the week.

Auto and banking stocks were in freefall, while debutant of the week Route Mobile bucked the trend and continued its journey northwards.

Going ahead, the weakness in the market is likely to persist.
