* The BSE index up 0.73 percent at 19,310.68, and the

after weak GDP data raised hopes for some monetary easing at the
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
farm loan exposure, after data showed farming output has grown
1.2 percent in the Sept quarter.
