This year has been tumultuous for Indian equity benchmarks. The domestic indices, which were gaining momentum on hopes of a post-Covid era, shivered again in February-end after Russia invaded Ukraine, denting investor sentiments. The central banks, across the globe, raising interest rates to tame inflation, also turned the markets jittery.

Due to this uncertainty, stocks -- which are considered fundamentally strong -- also faced the heat. The benchmark BSE Sensex and broader NSE Nifty fell more than 10 per cent, each, in 2022.

In sync, Tata Group shares have also been volatile. Some of the group companies have delivered gains while others have delivered losses. In addition, some companies of the salt-to-software conglomerate are in the process of a merger. Recently, Tata Group said it would merge seven of its metal companies into Tata Steel to drive efficiencies and reduce costs.

Currently, some of the group's stocks are off their 52-week highs, tracking a weaker trend in equities amid global slowdown fears. Few of the group's stocks tumbled today on reports that the company may reduce the number of its listed entities from 29 to 15.
