SENSEX-INFLATION-ICICI-BANKS-RBI-RATE:BSE Sensex flat; all eyes on inflation data
All eyes will be on the wholesale price inflation data for March, due out around 11:30 am.
WPI is expected to come in at 6.70 percent from a year ago, under the 6.95 percent recorded in February, according to a Reuters survey.
The inflation data will set the mood ahead of the Reserve Bank of India's policy meeting, with analysts widely expecting a 25 basis point cut in the repo rate, though some traders predict the central bank could cut the cash reserve ratio instead.
State Bank of India rose 1.7 percent, while real estate developer DLF gained 1.3 percent.
Those gains were offset by continued falls in software services exporters, with Infosys down 0.4 percent and Tata Consultancy Services
The country's main 30-share BSE index was trading down 0.05 percent, while the 50-share NSE index fell 0.03 percent.
