Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon is likely to make its onset over the Indian coast around 4 June 2019, private weather forecasting agency Skymet said on Tuesday. The 4 June prediction comes with an error margin of two days.

Overseas, European stocks edged lower on Wednesday as the rebound in global shares struggled to maintain its momentum. Asian shares were mostly higher Wednesday, following a recent slump amid escalating tensions on the US-China trade front.

Growth in China's industrial output for April increased 5.4% year-on-year from a 4-1/2 year high in March.
