pricing formula recommended by a government-appointed panel will
help sharply raise the prices of domestic natural gas.
 
* Oil and Natural Gas Corp shares are up 1.2 percent,
and have gained 6.4 percent in previous three sessions, while
Cairn India Ltd gains 1.8 percent, adding to 5.4
percent gain in the previous two sessions.
* Domestic shares are likely to consolidate as recent gains have
come on the back of strong foreign inflows. Asian stocks drifted
