MUMBAI, Dec 12 (Reuters) - India's BSE index fell for a
fourth consecutive session on Wednesday as Hindustan Unilever
was hit by worries it will face higher royalty payments, but
non-banking financials rose after the government reached an
agreement with the opposition over a banking amendment bill seen
benefitting the sector.
    Hindustan Unilever fell 3 percent, but L&T Finance
Holdings gained 5 percent, while Reliance Capital
 added 3.8 percent.  
    The BSE index provisionally fell 0.25 percent,
while the NSE index  fell 0.18 percent.
