India Shares Flat, Hero MotoCorp, Reliance Offset Tech Losses


BENGALURU Reuters Indian shares were unchanged on Friday, as gains in Hero MotoCorp and Reliance Industries were offset by losses in heavyweight information technology stocks.

By 0400 GMT, the bluechip NSE Nifty 50 index was down 0.02 at 15,676.25 and the benchmark SP BSE Sensex fell 0.04 to 52,299.41.

While declining COVID19 cases, easing of curbs and a surge in vaccinations have helped the indexes hit record highs recently, theyve struggled this week amid a lack of fresh domestic triggers, and are on track to post a weekly loss of more than 1.

Indias largest motorbike maker Hero MotoCorp gained as much as 1.6 after posting higher sales for June.

Conglomerate Reliance Industries rose 0.7, continuing its recovery after a recent 5day streak of losses.

The Nifty IT index fell 0.5, and was on track for its second straight session of losses.

The Nifty Bank index added 0.1.

The Reserve Bank of India said in its Financial Stability Report on Thursday that the impact of the pandemic on the balance sheet of banks has not been as severe as projected earlier.
