BENGALURU, Oct 23 (Reuters) - India's blue-chips fell on Monday tracking Asian peers, as the widening conflict in the Middle East hurt sentiments, while an earnings-led rise in private lender ICICI Bank capped losses.

The NSE Nifty 50 index was down 0.35% at 19,473.50 as of 10:20 a.m. IST, and the S&P BSE Sensex fell 0.30% to 65,201.92.

All the 13 major sectors logged losses. Kotak Mahindra Bank lost 2% after it named international banker Ashok Vaswani as managing director and CEO on Monday. Most analysts had expected an insider to succeed Uday Kotak.

Private lender ICICI Bank, on the other hand, gained as much as 1.29%, capping losses on the Nifty 50, after it beat quarterly estimates and posted a nearly 36% jump in net profit. The stock has the third-highest weightage in the benchmark.

Asian markets were down 0.5%, as the conflict between Israel and Hamas intensified and hurt sentiment.

The more domestically focussed small-caps mirrored the blue-chips, while mid-caps lost over 1% each.

"There are so many stocks in mid- and small-caps where liquidity is a big concern. When liquidity is good like it has been so far, the going is good. But when the tide turns, it's a double-edged sword," said Umeshkumar Mehta, chief investment officer at Samco Mutual Fund.

"Domestic equities will consolidate till the geopolitical concerns ease."

Ipca Laboratories jumped 5% after its manufacturing facility in Madhya Pradesh received an inspection report from the U.S. drug regulator.

Paytm lost nearly 3% despite strong quarterly results. The digital payments company has risen 6% in the previous five sessions ahead of the results.

Sunteck Realty declined 4.5% after reporting a consolidated net loss in the September quarter.
