MUMBAI, Feb 7 (Reuters) - Indian shares fell on Thursday, to their lowest close in one-and-a-half months, led by a decline in banking stocks, after government estimates showed India's FY13 growth could be worse than expected, while Cipla fell after its October-December net profit missed estimates.

ICICI Bank Ltd provisionally fell 0.8 percent, while Cipla Ltd ended 2.4 percent lower.

The BSE index provisionally fell 0.26 percent, while the 50-share NSE index ended down 0.31 percent. (Reporting by Abhishek Vishnoi; Editing by Anand Basu)
