New Delhi, Nov 1 (PTI) Manufacturing activities in India decelerated in October as new orders increased at the slowest pace in a year, triggering a softer rise in output and employment, a monthly survey said on Wednesday.
The seasonally adjusted S&P Global India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) slipped from 57.5 in September to 55.5 in October, the slowest rate of expansion since February.
The October PMI data pointed to an improvement in overall operating conditions for the 28th straight month. In PMI parlance, a print above 50 means expansion, while a score below 50 indicates contraction.
