In March, due to Pulwama and Balakot and a war-like situation, consumer confidence had sharply fallen by 6.8 percentage points. The index is measured by Thomson Reuters in partnership with Ipsos.

The monthly PCSI result which is driven by the aggregation of the four, weighted, sub-indices, has seen a sharp ascend and recovery across all indices: the PCSI Employment Confidence (“Jobs”) Sub-Index, is up by 6.8 percentage points; PCSI Economic Expectations (“Expectations”) Sub Index, has jumped up by 14.4 points; the PCSI Investment Climate (“Investment”) Sub-Index which has moved up by 10.9 points; and the PCSI Current Personal Financial Conditions (“Current Conditions”) Sub-Index which is up by 8.6 percentage points over last month.
