MUMBAI (Reuters) - Shares in Hindustan Unilever extend their fall on Wednesday after a number of investment banks, including Credit Suisse and Nomura, cut their ratings on slower-than-expected volume growth and a hike in royalty payments.

At 1:53 p.m., the shares were down 4.85 percent at 457.60 rupees, after falling nearly 7 percent in trade earlier.
