10:38 am Services PMI: The downturn in service sector activity across India softened during the opening month of 2017, with the slowdown reflecting a weaker contraction in new business inflows, says Nikkei IHS Markit in its report.

10:25 am Sugar production:
India's sugar production fell by 10 percent to 128.55 lakh tonnes in the first four months of the 2016-17 marketing year that started October last, due to lower cane production in Maharashtra because of drought.

Sugar marketing year runs from October to September.


For the 2016-17 season, Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) has recently revised sugar output estimates downward to 21.3 million tonnes from its earlier projection of 23.4 million tonnes. It has lowered the sugar consumption estimates to 24.2 million tonnes for this year taking into account reports of sluggish sugar sales.

"As on January 31, 2017, sugar mills in the country have produced 128.55 lakh tonnes of sugar, as compared to 142.80 produced last season on the corresponding date," said in a statement.
