Election 2014

More than 814 million people — a number larger than the population of Europe — are eligible to vote in the world’s biggest democratic exercise.  Full Coverage 

* India's benchmark BSE index breached the psychologically
meaningful level of 20,000 for the first time since Jan. 2011,
but retreated below that in later trading.
* Indian shares continue to be supported a day after the
government delayed the implementation of controversial rules on
tax avoidance and lower-than-expected inflation bolstered the
case for cut in interest rates.
* The BSE index is up 0.1 percent at 19,916.37 while the
NSE Index is flat.
* India's Tata Consultancy Services Ltd shares gain 2.7
percent, a day after topping expectations with a 23 percent rise
in October-December profit. 
* Auto makers shares gain on hopes a cut in interest rates will
improve industry demand: Maruti Suzuki India Ltd 
shares gain 0.7 percent, while Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd
 is up 0.3 percent.
