Reuters Market Eye - Shares in Wipro Ltd(WIPR.NS) fall 2.5 percent a day after it was announced the Indian software services exporter would be excluded from the Nifty from April 1.

"A corporate action like our demerger of a listed company would generally result in a short term withdrawal of the scrip from the index as it has been happening in the past where such corporate action had been initiated," Wipro said in a statement.

Wipro said in November it would fold all of its non-IT businesses into a new company and focus exclusively on information technology.

Wipro also said it expects restoration of the stock into the Nifty upon completion of the split in the next few months.
