India's six major infrastructure industries, grew by 8 % during the first quarter of the 2000-2001 fiscal year as against 7.1 % in the same period last year, the Central Statistics Organisation said.
The overall index of the six infrastructure industries -- electricity, coal, steel, crude petroleum, crude petroleum refinery products and cement, accounts for a total weight of 26.6 % in the index of industrial production. A review of production of these industries suggests that while petroleum refinery products grew by 34.5 % during April-June 2000-2001, those of steel and cement grew by 11.5 % and 3.9 % respectively.
While the electricity sector grew at a rate of 4.7 % ( same as recorded in the corresponding period of 1999-2000), those of the steel sector rose by 11.5 % during April-June 2000-2001 as against a growth of 12.7 % during the same months of the previous fiscal. However, crude petroleum output showed a negative growth rate of 2.5 % during the period as against negative 0.3 % recorded a year ago.
