However, according to many economists, the decline in Industrial production growth declined to 1.1 per cent in March from 5.6% in the previous month mainly on account of a 1.6% contraction in power output and a feeble 0.5 per cent growth in manufacturing. "The month-on-month data of IIP for FY 2023, industrial production was up 5.1 per cent YoY and given that RBI has now more maneuvering headroom, this can significantly improve in FY-24,” added Mohit Ralhan - Chief Executive Officer, TIW Capital.
