  • The Development Bank of Singapore (DBS) expects policy fine-tuning from the Indian government — on the lines of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) — in coming weeks.
  • According to DBS, incoming high-frequency data are likely to improve. The index of industrial production for August — due this week — is poised to extend gains from July’s 1.2 per cent, said DBS in its daily economic report today.
  • As GST-driven distortions fade, expectations are set on festive-driven demand, good monsoon, remonetisation and higher disposable income following an increase in wage or allowances to provide support to the production outlook, it said. Production in 2017-18 is likely to be around 2%, slower than last year’s 4.6 per cent, added the Singapore banking group.
