The stock was the biggest drag on both the indices during morning trade.

The company's market valuation plunged Rs 9,801.94 crore to Rs 43,007.06 crore during the late morning session on BSE.

This is the third consecutive quarterly loss reported by the company, which had registered a net profit of Rs 1,214.6 crore in the October-December quarter of 2017-18.

Total revenue from operations, however, rose 4.36 percent to Rs 77,582.71 crore as compared to Rs 74,337.7 crore in the year-ago period, Tata Motors said in a regulatory filing.

JLR's revenue declined 1 percent to 6.2 billion pounds.
