BENGALURU (Reuters) - Indian shares are expected to open lower on Wednesday, mirroring Asian peers, as risk aversion remained unabated on worries over a global recession.

India's NSE stock futures listed on the Singapore exchange were down 1.1% as of 0216 GMT, while MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 1.7%.

Indian markets are expected to remain rangebound until the central bank's policy decision on Friday, analysts have said. The Reserve Bank of India's three-day policy meeting begins on Wednesday.

The NSE Nifty 50 index and the S&P BSE Sensex closed flat at 17,007 and 57,107.52, respectively, on Tuesday.

Foreign institutional investors sold a net 28.24 billion Indian rupees ($345.63 million) worth Indian equities on Tuesday, while domestic investors purchased net 35.05 billion rupees worth shares, as per provisional data available with the National Stock Exchange.
