A weakening rupee, which depreciated by 35 paise to 65.51 against the dollar during the day on fears that the tax rate decision of the GST Council will have a revenue implication of Rs 20,000 crore annually, too dampened investor sentiment. "Oil remained well supported as ongoing output cuts led by the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and Russian Federation contributed to a significant reduction in excess supplies, also as tensions in the Middle East raised the prospects of supply disruptions", Desai told IANS. Mahindra & Mahindra, Axis Bank, the State Bank of India and Tata Consultancy Services were the top gainers on both indices.
