Indian indices are expected to open in green for a second day today amid firm cues from the global peers.

Further, quarterly earnings by select large-cap names such as Reliance Industries and JSW Steel and listing of Zomato's shares will mostly hog the limelight and result in stock-specific action.

On the result front, 41 companies, including RIL, JSW Steel, SBI Card, YES Bank and Federal Bank will report their quarterly numbers today.
