Core sector growth hits 6-month high of 5.2% in Sept

Wednesday, November 01, 2017

Eight core sectors grew to a six-month high of 5.2% in September, helped by a robust performance in coal, natural gas and refinery segments, official data showed yesterday. The eight infrastructure sectors -- coal, crude oil, natural gas, refinery products, fertilisers, steel, cement and electricity -- had witnessed a growth of 5.3% in September last year.

The expansion in September is highest since April, when the core sectors' growth stood at 2.6%. The production of coal, natural gas and refinery products rose by 10.6%, 6.3% and 8.1%, respectively on annual basis, according to the data released by the commerce and industry ministry.

Crude oil output registered a growth of 0.1% during the month under review as compared to a contraction of 4.1% in September 2016. On the other hand, growth rate of steel and cement production was slower in September this year as against the same month previous fiscal.

Secrecy is the key to success and hence you are required to maintain complete confidentiality about your plans.
