MUMBAI (Reuters) - The BSE Sensex dropped more than 1 percent on Monday, as global risk assets sold off after elections in Greece and France fuelled questions on their austerity policies.

The weaker rupee and uncertainty in a day when the Finance Bill containing the controversial provisions is set to be introduced to the parliament also weighed.

The main BSE index fell 1.5 percent to 16,588.32 points, while the Nifty fell 1.5 percent to 5,009.90 points.
