Exports entered the negative terrain after over an year, contracting 1.12 per cent in October primarily due to liquidity problem being faced by exporters following rollout of the Goods and Services Tax.

Goods imports last month were $ 37.12 billion, a gain of 7.6% from a year ago, data from the commerce and industry ministry showed.

Exporters had earlier warned that the double-digit growth in outbound shipment between July and September despite roll-out of GST might not present a true picture, as there were advance orders.
