New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: The Indian economy showed a relative improvement in August after being stuck in a limbo for over four months owing to the pandemic-induced nationwide lockdowns. The country’s Purchasing Managers' Index increasing from 46.0 in July to 52.0 in August. A reading of more than 50 in PMI has come as a glimmer of hope for the first time in five months.

Auto companies, led by Maruti Suzuki, reported a 17.1 per cent increase in domestic sales in August, as against 1.1 per cent increase in the previous month. With Central government’s Unlock 4.0 guidelines allowing resumption of several other services, there is bound to be an improvement in economic activities and Indian manufactures remain optimistic for the next twelve months.

Mindful of the same, here are the top 10 stocks we believe you should invest in for impressive returns.

Swaraj Engines

We recommend Swaraj Engines because it is a key supplier of tractor engines to Mahindra and Mahindra — the Indian company which reported a growth of 27 per cent YoY in its tractor division in the month of July. Given the recent hike in Minimum Support Price and robust rabi crop production, there is bound to be a strong demand for tractors.
