According to the core sector data for the month of May, coal sector has performed the best with 7.8% growth on a YoY (year-on-year) basis.

Stocks in the banking sector have opened the day on a positive note. As per financial times, Union Bank is set to launch 100 digital branches this year. These unmanned branches will serve more convenience to customers, reduce the cost of the bank and provide additional security while transacting. Apart from digital branches, the bank will soon be launching NFC (near field communication) enabled contactless debit cards, mobile wallets and mobile passbooks. With this, the bank expects more transactions to go through via the digital platform. However apart from the digital medium the bank has been overall growing its focus on alternative channels like ATMs and recycler ATMs as well. According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) data for Union Bank, at the end of April, transactions worth Rs 1.2 bn were carried out on the mobile platform as against 0.3 bn a year ago.
