(Reuters) - Indian shares slipped on Wednesday with banks among top losers, as investors stayed cautious ahead of the central bank's policy decision.
It is also expected to retain its "neutral" stance, while cautioning about inflation, which accelerated to a seven-month high in October.
"It is a general volatility in the markets before the RBI policy decision," said Rakesh Tarway, head of research at Reliance Securities.
Asian stocks also stumbled, dragged by losses on Wall Street as the technology sector stuttered yet again after a brief rebound. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped more than 1 percent.
Dish TV India Ltd dropped as much as 2.9 percent after posting a bigger-than-expected second-quarter loss.
