Industrial output grows 5% in April on good show by mining, power sectors

According to official data issued on Wednesday, India’s industrial production growth fell to a 3-month low of 5% in April 2024, primarily as a result of a weak performance by the manufacturing sector. The mining and electricity divisions fared better.

According to the Index of Industrial Production (IIP), factory output growth was 5.4% in March 2024 and 5.6% in February 2024.

In January 2024, the IIP reached its previous low of 4.2%.
