Currently, IIP is determined on 1993-94 as base year. With this having become obsolete, DIPP has now decided to compile new series based on a recent year, Commerce Ministry said on Wednesday, Nov 5. Presently, DIPP compiles production data of 209 items, while Central Statistical Organisation collects remaining data from other agencies. However, IIP is generated by the CSO. CMIE has a nationwide branch network for collection of corporate sector data relating to industrial production.
