New Delhi: Industrial production grew at a slower pace of 3.8 percent in September, mainly due to subdued performance of the manufacturing sector coupled with contraction in output of consumer durables.

Consumer durable goods output contracted by 4.8 percent in September as against a growth of 10.3 percent in the previous year. During the first half of this fiscal, the output of these goods declined by 1.5 percent as against a growth of 6.9 percent last year.

Electricity generation growth slipped to 3.4 percent in September compared to 5.1 percent a year before. However, mining recorded a growth of 7.9 percent in the month under review as against a contraction of 1.2 percent a year ago.

According to the use-based classification, growth rates in September 2017 came in at 6.6 percent for primary goods, 7.4 percent for capital goods, 1.9 percent for intermediate goods and 0.5 percent for infrastructure/construction goods compared to the previous year.

The consumer non-durable segment has recorded a growth of 10 percent.

In terms of industries, 11 out of 23 industry groups in the manufacturing sector have shown positive growth in September 2017 as against the previous year.
