in business activity. Business activity declined on account of restrictions
imposed by the government to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. The

manufacturing sector and services sector rose from 37.2 in Jul 2020 to 46.0
in Aug 2020.

consumption activities for the major part of Q1FY21 hurt the financial
performance of the Indian corporate sector.

several weeks led by technology stocks. Experts suggested that the
