next central bank meeting on Dec. 18.

ending in September, with a lower-than-expected growth at 5.3
percent, keeping it on track for its worst year in a decade.

of the year, helped by improved global environment and policy
action by the government.
* Both State Bank of India and Punjab National Bank
 gain 2.1 percent, with both banks having substantial
