MUMBAI Dec 18 Indian shares rose on Tuesday led
by lenders such as State Bank of India, as hopes parliament will
pass the banking amendment bill outweighed disappointment after
the Reserve Bank of India kept interest rates and the cash
reserve ratio unchanged.
State Bank of India provisionally rose 0.94 percent, after
falling as much as 2.8 percent earlier in the day, while ICICI
Bank ended up 0.4 percent.
The BSE index provisionally gained 0.60 percent,
while the 50-share NSE index ended up 0.61 percent.
