India 10 year bond yield falls sharply; not all see rate cut ahead  MUMBAI: Indian 10-year benchmark bond yield dropped to a 15-month low on Monday after lower-than-expected headline inflation raised hopes the central bank would cut interest rates this month, though not all analysts were convinced. Bond markets had already started pricing in the prospect of monetary easing last week after India revised its April industrial production to a contraction of 0.9 percent from its previous estimate of 0.1 percent growth. However, the views of a rate cut were ...
