The stock fell 1.15% intra day  to 1,196.25 level on BSE.

The large cap stock has risen 53.29% during the last one year and has gained 30.39% since the beginning of this year.

The stock is trading 2.54% below its 52 week high level of 1,231.50.

The company said on Wednesday halted gasoline exports from its Jamnagar site, causing profit margins from producing the fuel to jump to its highest since September.

Force majeure was declared after an unspecified issue at its export-oriented refinery; the plant can process more than 500,000 barrels per day.

Reliance expects to restart shipments within two weeks, an exchange filing said.

The firm said shutdown was not expected to have any material impact on overall operations.

Sources said at least two gasoline cargoes scheduled for this months loading from Reliance were affected.
