Launching of 28th Round of Quarterly Services and Infrastructure Outlook Survey SIOS Q4 2020 21


The Reserve Bank has launched the 28th round of the quarterly Services and Infrastructure Outlook Survey (SIOS) for the reference period January-March 2021. The survey assesses the business situation for the current quarter (Q4:2020-21) from selected companies in the services and infrastructure sectors in India and their expectations for the ensuing quarter (Q1:2021-22) based on qualitative responses on a set of indicators pertaining to demand conditions, financial conditions, employment conditions and the price situation.

Owing to continued uncertainty because of the Covid-19 pandemic, an additional block has been included in this survey round for assessing the outlook on key parameters for the two subsequent quarters (Q2:2021-22 and Q3:2021-22).

2. M/s Genesis Management & Market Research Pvt. Ltd. has been authorised to conduct the survey for January-March 2021 quarter on behalf of the Reserve Bank. While the agency will approach selected companies, other companies in the services and infrastructure sectors are also encouraged to participate in the survey by downloading the survey questionnaire from the Bank’s website which is placed under the head ‘Forms’ (see ‘More Links’ at the bottom of the RBI Homepage) and the sub-head ‘Survey’. The duly authenticated filled-in survey questionnaire may be e-mailed as per contact details given therein.

3. Identity of the respondents will not be revealed.
