Biggest fall in the Indian Stock Markets

Got it one of the forwards on the email:

Here are the 10 biggest falls in the Indian stock market history:

Oct 17 2006, Sensex falls 1744 points, recovers by 391 points

May 18, 2006: The Sensex registered a fall of 826 points (6.76 per cent) to close at 11,391, it's biggest ever, following heavy selling by FIIs, retail investors and a weakness in global markets.

April 28, 1992: The Sensex registered a fall of 570 points (12.77 per cent) to close at 3,870, it's second-largest, following the coming to light of the Harshad Mehta securities scam.

May 17, 2004: Another Monday. Sensex dropped by 565 points, its third biggest fall ever, to close at 4,505. With the NDA out of power and the Left parties, part of the UPA coalition government, flexing their muscle, the Sensex witnessed its second-biggest intra-day fall of 842 points, twice attracting suspension of trading. At close, however, it regained some of its lost ground.

May 15, 2006: The market fell by 463 points to 11,822 points.

May 22, 2006: Sensex slumped by 457 points to 10,482.
