HONG KONG Jan 31 (Reuters) - China shares finished January on a mixed note on Thursday, with the property sector weakened by a news report that the Beijing city government has submitted property tax plans to the State Council for approval.
The CSI300 of the top Shanghai and Shenzhen A-share listings closed down 0.1 percent at 2,686.9 on Thursday. The Shanghai Composite Index inched up 0.1 percent.
In January, both posted their second-straight monthly gain, rising 6.5 and 5.1 percent, respectively. (Reporting by Clement Tan; Editing by Richard Borsuk)
