The 30-share Sensex, after surging by 825 points in the past eight sessions, fell by 74.28, or 0.27 percent, to 27,065.66 in the morning trade.

The gauge had closed at record high of 27,139.94 after hitting an all-time intra-day high of 27,225.85 on Wednesday.
In a similar fashion, the NSE Nifty slipped from record high by losing 25.55 points, or 0.31 percent, to dip below 8,100-mark to 8,089.05. It closed at a life-time high of 8,114.60 after touching an intra-day fresh record high of 8,141.90 in the previous session.
The eight-day rally before Thursday's losses saw the BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty climbing to life-time highs on the back of sustained foreign fund inflows and positive domestic and global cues.
Brokers said that the market was in over-bought position following recent record-setting spree on robust capital inflows and participants preferred to lock in gains at current levels, pulling down the key indices from record highs.

They also said that the fall was also attributed to a weak trend on other Asian bourses on profit-taking following a rally across the region in Wednesday's trade.
In the Asian region, Hong Kong's Hang Seng index fell by 0.20 percent, while Japan's Nikkei Index edged lower by 0.17 percent.
US Dow Jones Industrial Average, however, ended 0.06 percent higher on Wednesday.
