Retail sales for May were up significantly year-on-year in Overseas markets (24.0%), in the UK (20.9%) and in North America (16.7%) but down in Europe (8.7%) and in China (8.1%) as import duty reduction is resulting in deferred purchases in advance of the 1 July effectivedate.

The High Court has listed the matter for further hearing in August 2018. Since the matter is sub-judice, it would not be appropriate for the company to make any further statements on the matter.

On the macro front, the Indian economy will see a robust GDP growth of 7.3% in 2018-19 and 7.5% for the next two as factors holding back growth in India fade, the World Bank has forecast. India's economy is robust, resilient and has potential to deliver sustained growth, Ayhan Kose, Director of the Development Prospects Group at the World Bank, told the media. Growth in India is projected to advance 7.3% in FY 2018-19 (1 April 2018-31 March 2019) and 7.5% in FY 2019-20, reflecting robust private consumption and strengthening investment, the bank said in its June 2018 edition of the Global Economic Prospect report. The report, released on Wednesday, is the global lender's flagship publication on the state of the world economy.

Overseas, shares in Europe and Asia traded higher, boosted by a rally in US stocks in the previous session, which saw the Dow Jones industrial average close above 25,000.

In US, the Dow Jones Industrial Average recorded its best daily gain since mid April as a rally in bank shares amplified a broad-market run-up that has been supported by gains in internet and technology shares. Market participants attributed Wednesday's rally to rising government bond rates. Higher rates tend to benefit the business of financials.

A rise in the yield of the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was supported by remarks from European Central Bank (ECB) senior officials, which showed the central bank remained on track to debate the timetable for ending its asset purchases soon.

Underlying strength in the euro area economy was making ECB confident that inflation will move toward target. The institution would next week discuss how it will wind down its 30 billion euro (about $35 billion) monthly-purchase program.

On the data front, the US trade deficit shrank 2.1% in April and tumbled to a seven-month low. Meanwhile, the productivity of American businesses rose at a revised 0.4% annual pace in the first quarter instead of 0.7% as originally reported. Output—or goods and services produced—climbed 2.7% instead of 2.8%, while unit-labor costs, or how much it costs to make each product, rose by 2.9%, a bit higher than the preliminary 2.7% estimate.
