About 1,545 shares declined against 977 advancing shares on the BSE. 3:00 pm Industrial Activity: RBI said available high-frequency indicators suggest a
mixed picture of industrial activity for Q3.

“Core industries’ growth was flat in October as all constituents barring steel and fertilisers slowed down sequentially. Coal mining, which revived strongly in Q2, slowed down too, while cement production contracted. In contrast, the Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) for manufacturing, which fell in October, rebounded in November, driven by output and new orders,” it explained.

Also, according to the Reserve Bank’s Industrial Outlook Survey (IOS), production is expected to pick up in Q3 as order books are rising.
