MUMBAI, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Indian shares provisionally edged
higher on Wednesday as Infosys recovered from recent falls,
while Housing Development Finance Corp rose on market talk MSCI
would increase the weighting of the mortgage lender in its
indexes. 
    HDFC gained 1.2 percent on market talk MSCI will
increase the weighting of the stock to account for the recent
stake sale from Carlyle Group, which has increased the free
floating shares.
    Infosys shares rose 0.6 percent, after falling 7
percent in the previous three sessions following disappointment
over its earnings outlook.   
    The BSE index provisionally gained 0.11 percent, 
while the 50-share NSE index rose 0.22 percent.
