New Delhi - Services sector activity in India stagnated during October amid weaker growth of new business orders, an HSBC survey said on Wednesday.

The HSBC India Services Business Activity Index, that tracks changes in activity at Indian services companies on a month-by-month basis, fell from 51.6 to exactly 50.0 in October.

A figure above 50 indicates the sector is expanding, while a figure below that level means contraction.

The stagnation in services sector activity follows five successive months of growth amid fall in new business orders, the report said.
