Indian shares are expected to remain range bound next week as investors await clarity on monsoon and upcoming budget before taking fresh positions amid Iraq conflict led risk aversion.
Stocks linked to monsoon driven rural sectors such as Mahindra and Mahindra and Hero MotoCorp, Dabur India and Hindustan Unilever, shares would be on watch.

News flow on gas pricing and power sector reforms would also be on watch.
