Moreover, a mixed trend in other Asian markets with China's index falling 0.82 percent after the US Fed hinted that it may go ahead with an interest rate hike in September, also weighed.
The 30-stock BSE index opened on a positive note at 26,469.42 and advanced to touch the day's high of 26,504.73. However, it gave up early gains and slipped into the red to hit a low of 26,215.16. The index finally settled 109.29 points or 0.41 percent lower at 26,283.09.
Selling activity also re-emerged in the broader markets with the BSE mid-cap index declining 0.23 percent and small-cap dropping by 0.20 percent.
