Sectoral indices also displayed a mixed performance with Nifty Consumer Durables closing 1.61 per cent lower, and Nifty FMCG falling 1.02 per cent. Nifty PSU Bank and Nifty Media, however, ended 0.96 per cent and 0.41 per cent higher respectively.

"Support is situated at 21,500 on the lower end. A significant decline below this level could potentially initiate a correction in the market. Conversely, sustained trades above 21,500 might lead to an upward movement in the market," Rupak De added.

"Investors exhibited a reversal in strategy, adopting a cautious approach in anticipation of the upcoming FOMC meeting and interim budget amid persistent concerns regarding elevated valuations and escalating tensions in the Middle East. Further, the trend weakened in EMs as liquidation order for a major Chinese real estate firm dampened the sentiment. The US Fed is anticipated to maintain a rate pause, close attention will be paid to any hints regarding a potential rate cut in the month of May," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.
