Thanks Rafia for testing this with TPC-H benchmarking.

I see that partition-wise aggregate plan too uses parallel index, am I
missing something?

This looks strange. This patch set does not touch parallel or seq scan as
such. I am not sure why this is happening. All these three queries explain
plan shows much higher execution time for parallel/seq scan.

However, do you see similar behaviour with patches applied,
"enable_partition_wise_agg = on" and "enable_partition_wise_agg = off" ?

Also, does rest of the queries perform better with partition-wise
