The Office of Economic Adviser, Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade is releasing Index of Eight Core Industries (ICI) for the Month of June, 2021.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.

The combined Index of Eight Core Industries stood at 126.6 in June 2021, which increased by8.9 per cent (provisional) as compared to the Index of June 2020. The production of Coal, Natural Gas, Refinery Products, Fertilizers, Steel, Cement and Electricity industries increased in June 2021 over the corresponding periodof last year.

Final growth rate of Index of Eight Core Industries for March 2021 is revised to 12.6 %from its provisional level 6.8%. The growth rate of ICI during April-June 2021-22 was 25.3% (P) as compared to the corresponding period of lastFY.
