At the NSE too, the stock fell by 4.89 percent to Rs 14.60.

Meanwhile, Kingfisher had yesterday said it would resume operations in a few days and the backlog of March salary would be given to its employees soon.

Kingfisher has been saddled with a huge loss of Rs 8,000 crore and a debt burden of another over Rs 7,000 crore which it has not serviced since January.
