Meanwhile, India's wholesale inflation eased to an eight-month low of 2.47 percent in March on cheaper food articles, the commerce ministry report showed, helping investors shrug off Infosys's lackluster quarterly results and data showing widening trade deficit in March.

Wholesale inflation was 2.48 per cent in February and 5.11 per cent in March previous year.

The benchmark BSE Sensex fell almost 300 points as it went below 34000-mark in early trade amid weak Asian Cues after a US-led strike on Syrian targets fuelled fresh geopolitical concerns.

The broader NSE Nifty too struggled before ending well above the 10,500-mark.

The 30-share index was trading lower by 77.41 points, or 0.23 per cent, at 34,115.24 at 1200 hrs, led by selling on IT, energy, consumer durables, telecom, auto, banking, oil & gas counters.
