Decline in Industrial growth is due to subdued manufacturing 
activities. 
The reason for poor performance of manufacturing sector is 
due to : 
-
Slower credit flow to medium and small scale industries  
-
Reduced lending by NBFCs owing to liquidity crunch 
-
Tapering of domestic demand for key sectors such as 
automotive sector, pharmaceuticals and machinery & equipment 
-
Volatility in international crude oil prices 
-
Prevailing trade related uncertainties etc. 
Exports of key labour intensive sectors such as gems & 
jewellery, basic metals, leather products and textiles have
