Posted On: 30 NOV 2023 5:00PM by PIB Delhi

The combined Index of Eight Core Industries (ICI) increased by 12.1per cent (provisional) in October 2023 as compared to the Index of October 2022. The production of all eight core industries (namely; Cement, Coal, Crude Oil, Electricity, Fertilizers, Natural Gas, Refinery Products and Steel)recorded positive growth in October 2023 over the corresponding month of last year. Details of annual and monthly indices and growth rates are provided at Annex I & II respectively.

2.  The ICI measures combined and individual performance of production of eight core industries viz. Cement,Coal, Crude Oil, Electricity,Fertilizers, Natural Gas, Refinery Products and Steel.The Eight Core Industries comprise 40.27 percent of the weight of items included in the Index of Industrial Production (IIP).

3. The final growth rate of Index of Eight Core Industries for July2023 is revised to 8.5per cent. The cumulativegrowth rate of ICI during April to October, 2023-24is 8.6per cent(provisional) as compared to the corresponding period of lastyear.

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