* The government's will to pass reforms is considered critical
to revive stock markets that have faltered over the past
month-and-a-half.

September when the government announced a slew of measures,
including opening up the multi-brand retail sector to foreign
investment, that don't require parliament's approval.

passage in parliament of other key measures, such as foreign
direct investment in pension and insurance, have contributed to

on the U.S. "fiscal cliff" could also weigh on sentiment.
