MUMBAI, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Indian shares rose for a second
consecutive session on Wednesday led by IT stocks such as Tata
Consultancy Services after recent losses were seen as overdone
and on hopes a resolution to the "U.S. cliff" standoff would
improve the outlook for a key export market.
Tata Consultancy Services provisionally rose 1.8
percent, while Infosys ended up 1.2 percent.
The BSE index provisionally gained 0.48 percent,
while the 50-share NSE index ended up 0.5 percent.
