The latest data indicates that the Combined Index of eight Core Industries has recorded a noteworthy increase of 8.1% (Provisional) in September 2023 compared to the same period in the previous year.

 

The Index comprehensively measures the production performance of eight core industries, including cement, coal, crude oil, electricity, fertilizers, natural gas, refinery products, and steel, as per the press release.
