|The Reserve Bank has launched the 26th round of the quarterly Services and Infrastructure Outlook Survey (SIOS) for the reference period July-September 2020. The survey assesses the business situation for the current quarter (Q2:2020-21) from selected companies in the services and infrastructure sectors in India and their expectations for the ensuing quarter (Q3:2020-21) based on qualitative responses on a set of indicators pertaining to demand conditions, financial conditions, employment conditions and the price situation. Owing to continued uncertainty because of the Covid-19 pandemic, an additional block has been included in this survey round for assessing the outlook on key parameters for the two subsequent quarters (Q4:2020-21 and Q1:2021-22).
2. M/s Hansa Research Group Pvt. Ltd. has been authorised to conduct the survey for July-September 2020 quarter on behalf of the Reserve Bank.
