Most Asian stocks rose Thursday following a rally in U.S. equities after U.S. central bank projected three quarter-point interest-rate increases in 2022, another three in 2023 and two more in 2024.

India's stock benchmarks fell for the fourth consecutive session Wednesday, dragged by losses in information technology, metal and reality stocks, as markets ended at day's low in a volatile session.

The Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India's Nifty 50 Index's performance, rose 0.65% to 17,363.50, as of 8:20 a.m.
