All the other segments saw dismal growth. The farm sector
is expected to perform well in FY21 as well. Mining was not affected much by the lockdown that was only in place for a few days in March.
Analysts say that if manufacturing continues to perform poorly, it would dampen mining as well, as the former buys most raw material from the latter.
