MARKET EYE-Indian shares extend fall; banks, Cipla drag

* The BSE index falls 0.17 percent, and the 50-share
NSE index also down 0.22 percent. 
* Shares extended their fall, led by a decline in banking
stocks, after preliminary data released on Thursday showed 
India's slowest growth in a decade could be worse than
anticipated as the economy is set to have grown 5.0 percent in
fiscal year ending next month. 
* ICICI Bank down 1.2 percent, while State Bank of
India drops 1 percent.
* Shares in India's Cipla Ltd fall 2.6 percent, a day
after the company's October-December net profit missed
estimates.  
* State-run power utility NTPC Ltd's shares fell 2.3
percent after the floor price of its share sale, scheduled later
in the day, was set at 145 rupees, or a 4.5 percent discount to
its Wednesday's close.
