At 10:13 am; Nifty IT index, the sole loser among sectoral indices, was down 1.3% as compared to 0.13% gain in the benchmark Nifty 50 index.

The Indian rupee strengthened for the third session to hit a fresh 16-month high against the US dollar. At 10.20 am, the rupee was trading at 65.47, up 0.53% from its previous close of 65.82.

On Tuesday, the rupee surged by a massive 78 paise to end at a nearly one-and-a-half year high of 65.82 against the US dollar on frantic unwinding of the American currency following BJP's emphatic victory in Uttar Pradesh.

A firm rupee adversely impacts the operating profit margin of IT firms as the sector derives a lion's share of revenue from exports.

Meanwhile, thus far in the calendar year 2017, Nifty IT index has underperformed the market by gaining 3.3% against 11.2% rise in the Nifty 50 index.
