HDFC Bank slipped 1.4 percent after its deputy managing director put in his papers on Friday, while State Bank of India shares shed 3.2 percent after the lender reported a wider-than-expected loss in the quarter ended June.

Cadila Healthcare slipped more than 6 percent on lower-than-expected U.S. sales, a Mumbai-based analyst said. The company beat analysts' estimates for first-quarter profit on Monday.

The broader NSE Nifty fell 0.65 percent to 11,355.75.

The BSE index ended 0.59 percent lower at 37,644.90.
