India’s industrial sector witnessed a significant growth in March 2024, with the Index of Industrial Production (IIP) rising by 4.9% compared to the same period last year. This growth reflects a positive trend in the country’s manufacturing, mining, and electricity sectors.

According to the latest data released by the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation, the Quick Estimates of IIP for March 2024 stand at 159.2, based on the 2011-12 index. Among the sectors, manufacturing recorded the highest growth rate of 5.2%, followed by electricity at 8.6%, and mining at 1.2%.

Within the manufacturing sector, key contributors to the growth include the production of basic metals, pharmaceuticals, and other transport equipment, which saw growth rates of 7.7%, 16.7%, and 25.4% respectively.

The cumulative growth rate for the period of April-March 2023-24 stands at 5.8% compared to the previous year, indicating sustained growth in the industrial sector.
