12.7 percent increase in Index of Eight Core Industries for June, 2022

Posted On: 29 JUL 2022 5:07PM by PIB Delhi

The combined Index of Eight Core Industries increased by 12.7 per cent (provisional) as compared to the Index of June 2021. The production of Coal, Cement, Electricity, Refinery Products, Fertilizers, Steel, and Natural Gas industries increased in June 2022 over the corresponding period of last year.

ICI measures combined and individual performance of production in selected eight core industries viz. Coal, Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Refinery Products, Fertilizers, Steel, Cement and Electricity. The Eight Core Industries comprise 40.27 percent of the weight of items included in the Index of Industrial Production (IIP). Details of yearly and monthly indices and growth rates are provided at Annex I & II respectively.

Final growth rate of Index of Eight Core Industries for March 2022 is revised to 4.8% from its provisional level 4.3%. The growth rate of ICI during April-June 2022-23 was 13.7% (P) as compared to the corresponding period of last FY.

The summary of the Index of Eight Core Industries is given below:

Coal –Coal production (weight: 10.33 per cent) increased by 31.1 per cent in June, 2022 over June, 2021. Its cumulative index increased by 31.2 per cent during April to June, 2022-23 over corresponding period of the previous year.
