The mining sector’s output had declined by 0.3 percent in June. However, in July, it rose by 1.3 percent from a slight increase of 0.1 percent in the corresponding month last year.

While the mining sector showed a good sign, the surge in the electricity sector was considerably low as compared to the data of July 2014. Last year, the rise in electricity sector was 11.7 percent. This year, the sector’s yields accelerated to 3.5 percent last month from a 1.3 percent growth in June.

The overall industrial output was however slower than the output last year. The period of April-July 2015 saw a rise of only 3.5 percent from an increase of 3.6 percent in the months of April-July 2014.

The mining sector’s cumulative output in the period under review inched up by 0.6 percent. On the whole, the manufacturing sector swelled by 4.00 percent, while the electricity sector expanded by 2.6 percent.
