The Indian stock market witnessed its biggest fall in four years on June 4, when the 2024 Lok Sabha election results were declared, showing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) winning a lesser number of seats compared to exit poll estimates.

The heavy fall in share prices led many investors to place purchase orders to take advantage of the low prices. However, many of these orders were processed the next day, when the market had bounced back by 3%, the report said.

“There was no technical glitch at the exchange end on 4th June. However, there was some lag in receiving payments from UPI channel for a few customers,” said a BSE spokesperson.

The RBI denied to comment on the matter during the monetary policy press conference, but said they are making efforts to reduce downtime for UPI transactions.

Daily UPI transactions are between Rs.40 to 45 crore so there is a lot of pressure, the RBI said, adding that there is no delay from the NPCI’s end, but there may be some delay at the banking end, which the central bank is trying to resolve in coordination with specific banks.
