MUMBAI Jan 16 Indian shares fell on Wednesday
snapping two days of gains, led by declines in rate sensitive
stocks, such as ICICI Bank, after the central bank chief was
reported by media as saying inflation was "still quite high",
denting hopes of a 50 basis points rate cut this month.
ICICI Bank Ltd provisionally fell 2.2 percent,
while State Bank of India ended 2.6 percent lower.
The BSE index provisionally fell 0.95 percent,
while the 50-share NSE index ended down 0.97 percent.
