    -----------------------
    The benchmark BSE index was up 0.02 percent at 20,110 while
the broader NSE index was up 0.19 percent to 6,086.80, off highs
on profit-taking after India's central bank lowered its key
policy rate as expected for the first time in nine months to
support an economy set for its slowest growth in a decade, but
signalled there was less room for aggressive cuts in future due
to concerns over inflation. 
    
    GOVERNMENT BONDS 
    -------------------------------
    The 10-year benchmark bond yield was flat at 7.87 percent

rates by a quarter percentage point, with its cautious stance on
future policy disappointing investors.

    --------------
    The rupee at 56.68/69 was stronger that previous close of
53.91/92 per dollar on the central bank's policy review.
