Anand Rathi Report

Buoyed by pent-up demand and festival sales, industrial growth during October 2020, at 3.6%, ran ahead of expectations, but is unlikely to continue. We do not expect any change in monetary or fiscal measures.

Electricity generation grew a sharp 11.2%; and manufacturing, 3.5%. Mining, however, recorded a 1.5% contraction.

Of the use-based categories, durables clocked the fastest growth, 17.6%.

Capital goods also recorded positive growth (3.3%), the first in 22 months. Only primary goods contracted during Oct-20.

Intermediate goods registered subdued growth during the month.
