With rapid Covid vaccination drive exceeding 100 crore doses in the country, the economy has started gaining momentum, while rural economic activity continues to be resilient. The monsoon, though normal at cumulative level, has been back ended with heavy rainfall in September and October. This has resulted in delayed harvesting of Kharif crop, while leading to higher reservoir levels and moisture content for Rabi crop. Expectation of a good Kharif harvest, coupled with good preparations for Rabi crop and the upcoming festivities, will boost positive sentiments and drive demand in the coming months. In the exports market, we have sold 1597 tractors with a growth of 65% over last year.”
