Five Indian states contributing nearly 27% of the country’s gross domestic product are leading a recovery in the economy as it slowly emerges from the world’s biggest lockdown, a study by Elara Securities Inc. shows.

Kerala, Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Haryana and Karnataka have seen a pickup in activity, based on an analysis of indicators such as power consumption, traffic movement, arrival of farm products at wholesale markets and Google mobility data, Garima Kapoor, an economist at Elara Securities in Mumbai, wrote in a note.

The absolute most industrialized states, for example, Maharashtra and Gujarat were trailing a direct result of extreme estimates still set up to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, she said. 

India will start a staged lifting of the across the nation lockdown from June 8, permitting shopping centers, eateries and spots of love to revive in zones where infection diseases are leveled out. 

"The best upgrade India can have is resumption of ordinary monetary action," Kapoor said. "The nation is seeing an improvement in movement yet it stays irregular."

Punjab and Haryana were among states that saw an improvement in electricity requirement, reflecting demand from farm operations, the study showed. National capital Delhi also showed an increase in power demand as well as mobility trends.

Kapoor examined Google search trends to see if consumers are shifting consumption patterns as they adapt to a “new way of life."

The analysis showed there was pent-up demand for salon services, air conditioners, air travel, bikes, vacuum cleaners and washing machines. Searches associated with panic-buying when the lockdown was first announced -- such as pharmacy and grocery stores and liquid soaps -- have eased. Consumers haven’t given up looking for items such as earphones, hair oil, laptops, mobile phones, jewelery, mops, toys and microwave ovens.


“We anticipate demand to persist in the upcoming months, as some are virus-related shifts in patterns," Kapoor said.
