Economy:

Rising from 60.2 in May to 60.5 in June, the seasonally adjusted HSBC India Services Business Activity Index pointed to a sharp expansion in output. Demand strength and rising intakes of new business were cited as the key determinants of growth.

Supporting the upturn in total new business was a record expansion in international orders. Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and the US were all cited as sources of new work from abroad.

The HSBC India Composite Output Index recovered from 60.5 in the previous month to 60.9, highlighting a sharp rate of expansion that was considerably above the long-run series average. Manufacturing led the rise for the fifth straight month.

Supporting the stronger increase in output were faster expansions in new business at both goods producers and service providers. Aggregate sales rose sharply, helped by a near-record upturn in exports.
