The benchmark BSE Sensex dropped by 57 points to 33,194.35 in early trade today after banking, telecom, auto, oil & gas, and pharma stocks declined following weak global cues.

The 30-share index declined by 56.58 points or 0.17 per cent to 33,194.35. The gauge had gained 32.12 points in yesterday's highly volatile session.

Asian Paint and Reliance Industries also dropped by 1.78 per cent, dragging the index into the negative zone.Other major losers were Adani Ports, Axis Bank, TCS, Sun Pharma, Dr Reddy's, HDFC Ltd, Power Grid, M&M, Hero MotoCorp, Wipro and Infosys.
