* Nifty futures on the Singapore Exchange gains 0.36
percent. The MSCI-Asia Pacific index, excluding Japan
 is up 0.21 percent.    
* Many Asian stocks started Thursday with mild gains while oil
eased following the previous session's rally as investors look
ahead to negotiations on the U.S. debt limit and spending cuts.

domestic institutions sold 4.17 billion rupees of stocks on
Wednesday, when India's BSE index rose 0.68 percent.

on Thursday to discuss the government's plan for the next
airwave auction. (0430 GMT)
