Industrial production has made a remarkable growth at 4.3% defying slowdown from previous month’s 1.2

The previous high in IIP growth was recorded at 5.7 percent in November 2016.

In a boost to the economy, the factory output growth in August surged to 9-month high of 4.2 per cent, indicating an acceleration of industrial activities after the initial setback due to GST-related destocking.

Factory output measured by the index of industrial production (IIP) is the closest approximation for measuring economic activity in the country's business landscape.

Economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast 2.4% growth in output compared with a revised 0.9% year-on-year increase in July.
