Industrial production growth slipped to 4.3 per cent in July, mainly on account of poor show by the manufacturing sector, according to official data released on Thursday. Factory output, as measured in terms of Index of Industrial Production (IIP), had expanded 6.5 per cent in July 2018. Retail inflation rose marginally to 3.21 per cent in August from 3.15 per cent last month on the back of higher food prices, the government data showed on Thursday.
