Shares in India's Bharti Infratel gain 5.3 percent after the company entered into a tower sharing pact with Reliance Jio Infocomm, Reliance Industries' telecom unit.

"Reliance Jio can hire nearly 5,000 towers from Bharti Infratel in FY15 which means a rental income of around 2 billion rupees for the company," an analysts tracking the sector said.

Reliance Industries and Bharti Airtel Ltd in December 2013 had agreed to share network infrastructure.
