INDEX OF EIGHT CORE INDUSTRIES (BASE: 2011-12=100) FOR NOVEMBER, 2022Posted Date:- Dec 30, 2022

The combined Index of Eight Core Industries increased by 5.4 per cent (provisional) in November 2022 as compared to the Index of November 2021. The production of Cement, Coal, Electricity, Steel and Fertilizers increased in November 2022 over the corresponding month of last year. ICI measures combined and individual performance of production of 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 annual and monthly indices and growth rates are provided at Annex I & II respectively.

2. Final growth rate of Index of Eight Core Industries for August 2022 is revised to 4.2% from its provisional level 3.3%. The cumulative growth rate of ICI during April-November 2022 was 8.0% (provisional) as compared to the corresponding period of last year.
