NEW DELHI: The six core infrastructure industries, including crude petroleum, coal, cement and electricity, witnessed a marginal decline in growth to 4.7 percent in December 2005 from 4.8 percent during the same month last year.

For the period of April-December-06, the six core industries saw a decline in growth to 4.5 percent (6.4 percent), an official communiqué said. This marginal decline in infrastructure growth during the above mentioned period was largely on account of a sharp decline in crude oil output and poor performance in the power sector.

According to the data released, the crude petroleum production registered a negative growth of 8.1 percent (provisional) in December 2005 compared to minus 0.6 percent in December 2004. For the nine-month (April-December 2005-06) period, the crude petroleum production registered a negative growth of 5.9 percent as against 2.8 percent during the same period a year ago.

Petroleum refinery production registered a growth of 8.8 percent December 2005 (9.2 percent). For the nine-month period, the growth was 0.4 percent (provisional) against 6.6 percent in the same period of 2004-05.
