Combined Index of Eight Core Industries (ICI) increases by 3.8 per cent (provisional) in December 2021

Final growth rate of ICI for September 2021 revised to 5.4% from provisional 4.4%

ICI growth rate during April-December 2021 recorded at 12.6% (P) over same period last FY

The combined Index of Eight Core Industries stood at 141.3 in December 2021, which is an increase of 3.8 per cent (provisional) as compared to December 2020. The production of Coal, Natural Gas, Refinery Products, Fertilizers, Cement and Electricity industries increased in December 2021 over the corresponding period of last year.

The Office of Economic Adviser, Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) today released the Index of Eight Core Industries (ICI) for the Month of December, 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.

Final growth rate of Index of Eight Core Industries for September 2021 is revised to 5.4% from its provisional level 4.4%. The growth rate of ICI during April-December 2021 was 12.6% (P) as compared to the corresponding period of last FY.

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