Stocks of oil and gas, power and realty sectors were the major losers due to profit- booking. Similarly, the wide-based National Stock Exchange index, Nifty, moved down by 7.90 points, or 0,13 percent, to 6,021.13.
Brokers said profit-booking by funds and retail investors after three sessions of gains mainly influenced the trading sentiment. However, firm trend in Asian region restricted the fall they said.
In the Asian region, Japan's Nikkei Index rose by 1.23 percent, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng index by 0.64 percent in morning trade on Monday.
