Indian shares are likely to open higher on Tuesday amid expectations the government will address tax concerns and announce steps to revive economic growth. Meanwhile, Asian shares traded lower due to the weak sentiment arising from the US-China trade war and turbulence amongst protesters in Hong Kong.
