MARKET EYE-Unilever's India unit falls on emerging market outlook

* Shares in Hindustan Unilever Ltd fall 0.6 percent
after parent company Unilever Plc cited the risk of a
"modest" slowdown in key emerging markets in an annual report.
* "In emerging markets consumer demand remains robust but there
is nonetheless the risk of modest slowdown in key markets such
as China, India and Brazil," Unilever said in an undated report
posted on its web site.
* Dealers say Unilever's statement exacerbates existing concerns
about the Indian unit's outlook given signs of weakening volume
growth and rising competition.
