MUMBAI, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Indian shares provisionally
closed on Thursday at their highest levels since April 2011,

foreign supermarkets set up shop in India, taking a major step
towards ending a deadlock in the parliament.

 rose 4.9 percent, HDFC Bank gains 3.2
percent.
    Tata Motors added 4.46 percent, while DLF 
rose 1.8 percent.
    The BSE index provisionally ended up 1.78 percent
