According to a recent survey by S&P Global India services Purchasing Managers’ Index, the growth in the services industry has decreased from last month’s twelve year-high but stayed above 50-mark, signifying growth. The survey showed that the softening of demand had caused this economic decline. The input cost inflation has decreased to its lowest since September 2020.

S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Economics Associate Director Pollyanna De Lima commented that the growth in the service sector was progressing with increased new business intakes and output, albeit at lower rates. On the other hand, the manufacturing sector has taken up the mantle as the main driver of growth.
