Indian shares fell on Tuesday to snap a three-day winning streak due to profit-taking in stocks of blue chips such as Larsen and Toubro Ltd after upbeat U.S. data raised fears the Federal Reserve would reduce its monetary stimulus.

L&T provisionally fell 1.3 percent, while HDFC Bank Ltd ended 0.7 percent lower.

The benchmark BSE index provisionally fell 0.2 percent, while the broader NSE index ended lower 0.26 percent, retracing from nearly a month high hit on Monday.
