Indian shares fell marginally on Tuesday as a slide in financials nearly offset the optimism from favourable domestic inflation data and persistent foreign institutional buying in equities. Nine of the 13 major sectoral indexes advanced with public sector banks and realty adding over 0.8% each. High weightage financials shed over 0.5% dragging the benchmark. Both Housing Development Finance Corporation Ltd and HDFC Bank lost over 1% and were among the top Nifty 50 losers.
