Indian benchmark index falls, as US economy goes into recession

By Margarita Snegireva. Indian benchmark index is on course for its steepest plunge in almost four years, on concern the U.S. will enter a recession and slow global growth.

All 30 stocks on the Bombay Stock Exchange's Sensex Sensitive Index declined, extending the gauge's losses to 17.4 percent from a Jan. 10 high. Reliance Industries Ltd., the nation's most valuable company, led the retreat.

"Nobody is comfortable after such a huge correction from the peak. It started off with recession fears in the U.S. and then consistent selling by foreign investors.''

The Sensex dropped 1,490.60 points, or 7.8 percent, to 17,523.10 as of 2:36 p.m. local time, after plunging as much as 8.9 percent.
