Indian shares end lower, all eyes on Infosys results

* NSE index down 0.25 pct, BSE benchmark 0.27 pct lower

* Infosys closes 0.68 up ahead of results

Jan 11 (Reuters) - Indian shares settled lower on Friday as disappointment over technology giant Tata Consultancy Services missing quarterly margin estimates weighed on the trading sentiment, while investors looked out for results from its rival Infosys Ltd for clarity.

The benchmark BSE index closed the session 0.27 percent lower at 36,009.84, while the broader NSE index ended down 0.25 percent at 10,794.95.

For the week, however, the Sensex rose 0.9 percent, while the Nifty gained 0.6 percent.

Shares of Infosys, scheduled to report quarterly earnings later in the day, closed the session 0.68 percent higher.
