What is a good industrial production growth rate?

As per quick estimates from the National Statistical Office (NSO), India’s industrial output grew by 11.5% in July compared to a 10.5% contraction a year ago. Manufacturing, mining and electricity output recorded double digit growth in July 2021. You can read about the Index of Industrial Production [UPSC Economy Notes] in the given link.

Although the output remained slightly below the pre-pandemic level, mainly due to a low-base effect and good performance by power, mining, and manufacturing sectors there was a surge in industrial production rate.
