Oct 6 Indian shares closed lower on Thursday as
investors booked profits in cement stocks after a stellar rally
this week and amid caution ahead of the U.S. payrolls data,
which is expected to give a better idea about the Federal
Reserve's likely policy stance.
The benchmark BSE index ended 0.41 percent lower at
28,106.21, while the broader NSE index closed 0.39
percent down at 8,709.55.
Among the cement stocks, UltraTech Cement fell 1.8
percent after rising about 4 percent over the last three trading
sessions, while ACC Ltd closed 0.5 percent lower after
a gain of 3 percent in the last four sessions.
