May, 02nd 2013
The Reserve Bank of India has launched the 62nd round of the Industrial Outlook Survey (IOS) for reference period April-June 2013. The Reserve Bank has been conducting the Industrial Outlook Survey on a quarterly basis since 1998. The survey gives an insight into the perception of the public and private limited companies engaged in manufacturing activities about their own performance and prospects. The survey covers non-financial private and public limited companies with a good size/industry representation. The assessment of business sentiments for the current quarter and expectations for the ensuing quarter are based on qualitative responses to 22 major parameters covering overall business situation, financial situation, demand indicators, price and employment, profit margins, etc. The survey provides useful forward looking inputs for policymakers, analysts and businesses alike.
The salient features of this survey results at the aggregate level are published in Macroeconomic and Monetary Developments with data release in every quarter. A detailed article based on the results for the quarters April-June 2012-13 to January-March 2012-13 will be published in July 2013 issue of the RBI monthly Bulletin.

Manufacturing companies will be approached by this agency during the quarter. However, other manufacturing companies who are not approached by the agency can also participate in this survey by downloading the survey schedule from the Reserve Bank’s website www.rbi.org.in.
