Indian industries grew well in January. Markets flat despite good IIP

The Indian industries witnessed a good growth in the month of January, as per the latest IIP figures. The IIP figures for January have come at 6.8% to indicate a bounceback. This shows a recovery in the industrial sectors, especially in the manufacturing sector. Sectorwise, the mining output saw a contraction of 2.7 per cent in the month of January, while the manufacturing and electricity sectors have recorded a strong growth of 8.5 per cent and 3.2 per cent.
