The Reserve Bank has launched the 93rd round of the quarterly Industrial Outlook Survey (IOS) of the Indian manufacturing sector for the reference period January-March 2021. The survey assesses business sentiment for the current quarter (Q4:2020-21) and 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. The survey provides useful insight into the performance of the manufacturing sector. 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).
3. M/s Genesis Management & Market Research Pvt. Ltd. has been authorized to conduct the survey for January-March 2021 on behalf of the Reserve Bank. While the agency will approach selected companies, other manufacturing companies are also encouraged to participate in the survey by downloading the survey questionnaire from the Bank’s website https://www.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_ViewForms.aspx?FCId=40, 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.
