MUMBAI, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Indian shares ended flat on Monday, and not far off yearly lows, as technology firms such as Infosys rose on hopes the 2013/14 budget would provide incentives for exporters, while ONGC fell on worries about a potentially higher oil subsidy burden.

Infosys Ltd provisionally rose 2.8 percent, while Oil and Natural Gas Corp Ltd fell 2.15 percent, ahead of the 2013/14 budget to be presented on Thursday.

The BSE index provisionally ended flat, barely above its lowest close since Dec. 24 hit on Friday.
