Combined Index of Eight Core Industries increases by 6.7% (provisional) in Feb 2024 as compared to Index of Feb 2023

The combined Index of Eight Core Industries (ICI) increased by 6.7per cent (provisional) in February 2024 as compared to the Index of February 2023. The production of Coal,Natural Gas,Cement, Steel, Crude Oil,ElectricityandRefinery Productsrecorded positive growth in February 2024. The details of annual and monthly indices and growth rates are provided at Annex I andAnnex II respectively.

The ICI measures the combined and individual performance of production of eight core industries viz.
