MUMBAI May 8 Indian shares edged up on

crucial election results next week.

such as Wipro Ltd, which gained 0.97 percent after
losing 11.6 percent since April 16, while Housing Development
and Finance Corp ended 0.3 percent lower.
The benchmark BSE index provisionally closed 0.09
percent higher at 22,344.04, while the broader NSE index
ended 0.11 percent higher at 6,659.85.
