Data from a private survey showed that the seasonally adjusted IHS Markit
India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) fell to 57.5 in Feb
2021 from 57.7 in Jan 2021. Manufacturing activity growth slowed slightly
in February compared to the previous month, but it remained strong.
However, because of the Covid-19 limitations, employment has declined
even further.
According to an economic report by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), the
economy is picking up steam, but the outlook is clouded by the resurgence
of the coronavirus infection. Many of the engines of aggregate demand are
beginning to fire, only private investment has yet to fire, and now is the
time for it to do so. Liquidity steps that are broader reflect the system's
easing monetary and financial conditions.
According to the power ministry data, India's power consumption grew
0.88% in Feb 2021 at 104.73 billion units (BU) as against 103.81 BU in Feb

The Prime Minister of India stated that although the private sector has
made substantial contributions to agricultural research and development, it
is now time to increase private sector involvement in agricultural research
and development. It should not be limited to only plants, but rather a
comprehensive scientific ecosystem linked to a single crop during its life
According to media reports, Coal India's production and offtake remained
subdued in Feb 2021 due to lower demand and robust pithead stock of 78
million tonnes.
Tata Motors reported 51.07% increase in total sales at 61,365 units in Feb
2021 as against 40,619 total units in the same month last year. Total
domestic sales rose 54% at 58,473 units, as compared to 38,002 units in
Feb last year
Asian markets went up, led by investor optimism about the coronavirus
vaccine rollout and the stimulus-driven global economic recovery. Chinese
markets rose after the latest survey from Caixin showed the manufacturing
sector in China continued to expand in Feb, albeit at a slower pace. Today
(as on Mar 03), Asian markets rose following rise on the Wall Street
overnight. Both Hang Seng and Nikkei rose 0.44% and 0.87%, respectively
(as at 8 a.m. IST).
European markets rose strongly buoyed by upbeat U.S. and Euro area
economic data and fall in Treasury yields. Greater momentum in rollout of
vaccines, drop in coronavirus cases, and news about the U.S. House passing
a $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill proposed by the U.S. President Joe Biden
further benefitted the market.
U.S. markets surged following a notable surge in U.S. manufacturing
activity, and on increasing hopes about additional stimulus after the House
of Representatives passed a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill on Saturday.
