consumption in India would reach the levels of China in 2025.

restaurants and jewellery will exceed sector growth, while
detergents, oral care and personal wash will lag.

, which operates the Domino's pizza chain in India,
with a 'buy' rating and a 12-month target price of 1,704 rupees.
* The investment bank also maintains 'buy' ratings on cigarette
maker ITC and personal care products maker Marico Ltd
