    India's BSE index down 0.15 percent and the broader NSE

    GOVERNMENT BONDS 
    -------------------------------
    India's benchmark 10-year government bond 
yield up 1 basis point (bp) at 7.83 percent on profit-taking
after yields fell to their lowest in a month, with optimism
prevailing in the lead up to the 2013/14 budget as investors bet
on a fiscally disciplined government. 
    
    RUPEE    
    --------------
