Indian shares ended largely unchanged on Wednesday as threats of a new tariff imposition on Chinese goods by the United States hurt sentiment, but losses were curbed as technology stocks such as Tata Consultancy Services Ltd gained after posting a record quarterly net profit.
The broader NSE Nifty closed up 0.01 per cent at 10,948.30, while the benchmark BSE Sensex ended 0.07 per cent higher at 36,265.93.
While Tata Consultancy Services ended the session 5.6 per cent higher, metals and financial stocks were the biggest drag on the indexes. ICICI Bank Ltd ended 1.7 per cent lower, while Vedanta Ltd closed 3.5 per cent lower.
