IIP will grow by 0-0.5% in Jan, says D&B: Index of Industrial Production (IIP) will remain weak and may only grow up to 0.5% during January, on account of various constraints, including subdued domestic demand and an uncertain external demand, according to Dun & Bradstreet's latest economic forecast. "Industrial sector faces constraints from subdued domestic demand and weak, uncertain external demand on one hand and financing constraints, rising input prices and stalled projects on the other hand," D&B said in a report. Besides, firming up of global commodity prices as well as depreciation of the rupee poses significant upward risk to inflation.
