MUMBAI, Dec 27 (Reuters) - Indian shares fell on Thursday as
recent out-performers such as Reliance Industries were hit by
profit-booking, while technology stocks such as Infosys fell due
to concerns about their profit outlooks ahead of the expiry of
derivatives at the end of the session. 
    Reliance Industries shares fell 1.2 percent lower
and Infosys lost 0.9 percent.
    The BSE index provisionally fell 0.4 percent, while
the NSE index fell 0.6 percent.
