kick off in full force, preferring in the meantime to book
profits from a sharp rally at the start of the year.

domestic institutions sold 10.28 billion rupees of stocks on
Tuesday, when India's BSE index rose 0.26 percent.

near term, but don't expect any material positives. However, any
hint of positive earnings from IT major Infosys on Friday will
set a positive tone for the markets.

later in the day.
