Reliance Industries Ltd’s stock, up 1.3 percent, was the top boost, while shares of Tata Consultancy Services Ltd rose 2.2 percent.

Shares of country’s largest lender State Bank of India ended 2.9 percent lower, while those of private-sector lender Axis Bank Ltd closed down 2.7 percent.

Miner Vedanta Ltd, which traded ex-dividend, was the top loser, with the stock falling 6.8 percent. For midday report, click (Reporting by Chris Thomas in Bengaluru; Editing by Rashmi Aich)
