STOCKS  
    -----------------------

to boost sales hurt by a slowing economy. 
    
    GOVERNMENT BONDS 
    --------------------------------

    --------------
    The rupee ends stronger at 61.84/85 per dollar versus its

a largely in-line budget, sticking to his fiscal deficit target
while doling out sops to some sectors.
