Aug IIP At Stellar 6.4%; CPI Inflation Rises To 4.41%
Index For Industrial Production (IIP) for August 2015 at 6.4 per cent, left most analysts surprise. Manufacturing growth came in at 6.9 per cent (month-on-month), which largely gave a push to the IIP.

In terms of industries, fifteen (15) out of the twenty two (22) industry groups (as per 2-digit NIC-2004) in the manufacturing sec tor have shown positive growth during the month of August 2015 as compared to the corresponding month of the previous year.
