The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said Friday it has launched the next round of its quarterly Industrial Outlook Survey (IOS) to assess corporate sentiment for the current quarter and expectations for the next three-month period.
The survey assesses business sentiment and expectations based on qualitative responses to a range of indicators related to demand conditions, financial conditions, employment and the price situation.
“The survey provides useful insight into the performance of the manufacturing sector,” the RBI said in a statement.
Due to ongoing uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an additional block has been included in the survey round to assess the outlook on key parameters for the third and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2022-2023.
In another statement, the RBI said it has launched the 33rd round of the quarterly Services and Infrastructure Outlook Survey (SIOS).
The survey assesses the current quarter’s business situation of selected companies in the services and infrastructure sectors and their expectations for the next quarter.
This research records the answers to a range of indicators related to demand conditions, financial conditions, employment and the price situation.
