MUMBAI, Mar 11 (Reuters) - Indian shares snapped a 4-session gaining streak on Monday as technology stocks fell on profit-booking, while shares sensitive to interest rates fell after the central bank governor rejected that high inflation is the "new normal."

Reserve Bank of India Gov. Duvvuri Subbarao rejected the notion that high inflation is the "new normal" in comments on Friday, raising concerns the central bank could remain hawkish about interest rates.
