hopes earnings will look up in fiscal 2014 on the back of an
improving global economy.
* Gains come a day after industry body, the National Association
of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom), forecasts exports
from the software services sector will grow 12-14 percent in

* Infosys Ltd shares gain 1.21 percent, while HCL
Technologies Ltd rises 3.53 percent.

India's largest software service exporter to $2.5 billion from
$1 billion.
