Indian shares slid on Thursday, ahead of the expiry of October derivative contracts, while infrastructure stocks declined after weak results from industrial conglomerate Larsen and Toubro.

The NSE Nifty 50 index fell 0.82% to 11,633.3 in pre-open trade and the S&P BSE Sensex declined 0.97% to 39,537.17.

Larsen reported a quarterly loss from continuing operations on a standalone basis on Wednesday, sending its shares down 3.23% in pre-open trade and pulling down the Nifty infrastructure index 1.09%.

Axis Bank rose 0.36% after the lender reported a profit for the September quarter.
