India's stock, bond, and currency markets are closed on Tuesday for Eid celebrations. Trading will resume on Wednesday.
On Monday, the NSE Nifty dropped 1.70%, while the BSE Sensex fell 1.54%.
The benchmark 10-year bond yield ended at 7.08% compared with 7.06 percent on Friday, while the rupee weakened to 66.9225 per dollar from its previous close of 66.6750.
However, Asian stocks rose early on Tuesday, boosted as Wall Street rallied overnight after Federal Reserve Board Governor Lael Brainard brought relief to risk asset markets by reducing prospects of a near-term interest rate hike.
The dollar, on the other hand, nursed losses against its peers after Brainard reiterated her dovish views.
