indian-stockMUMBAI: Indian shares fell on Friday, marking a second day of declines, led by falls in State Bank of India, after the country's biggest lender posted its smallest profit increase this year as bad loans constrained earnings growth.

The BSE index provisionally fell 0.89 percent, while the 50-share NSE index ended down 0.91 percent.
