According to the BSE, more than 8,000 connections log in every day. “At 9.42 am, the number of primary connections had come down to less than 2,000 and hence market needed to be closed as per current regulations applicable to closure of markets,” the BSE official said.
The problem was resolved by 12.15 pm before the market could be started from the Disaster Recovery Site located at Dhirubhai Ambani Knowledge City.
The BSE Sensex closed at 25,823.75, down 17.46 points from Wednesday’s close, after hitting life-time high of 25,999.08.
