Indian shares edge higher; BHEL falls 6.5 pct

MUMBAI, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Indian shares edged higher for a third consecutive session on Wednesday as a weak rupee boosted technology stocks such as Tata Consultancy Services Ltd although broader gains were capped after disappointing earnings from blue-chips including Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd .

The benchmark BSE index provisionally gained 0.14 percent to 25,918.09, while the broader NSE index ended 0.16 percent at 7,739.55.
