Important Indian Economic Numbers and their Release Date

Given how much excitement there is over the possibility of a repo rate cut during RBI’s Monetary Policy announcement tomorrow I decided to take a look at some other major economic numbers that were declared recently, and found that it is really cumbersome to get a snapshot of the major economic numbers at one place.

In a bid to overcome that – I’ve prepared this table which keeps tab on some of the important economic numbers that people generally talk about and I’ll try to keep this page updated as frequently as I can.


S.No. Name Source Periodicity Last Declared Last Number Next Due Date
1. IIP MOSPI Monthly June 11 2012 -0.1% for March 2012 12 July 2012
2. Monthly data on India’s International Trade in Services RBI Monthly May 10 2012 Exports $24.5 bnImports $37.9 bn for April 2012 Unspecified but probably mid June
3. India’s Foreign Trade Ministry of Commerce Monthly April 2, 2012 Trade Deficit of $166.7 bn Unspecified but probably early May
4. WPI Inflation Data Office of the Economic Adviser Monthly May 14 2012 7.23% provisional for the month of April 2012 14 June 2012
5. GDP MOSPI Quarterly August 31 2012 5.5% Q1 2012 – 13 (Apr – Jun) 30th Nov 2012
6. Monetary Policy RBI Quarterly April 17 2012 Repo Rate 8.0% 18th June 2012
7. External Debt Ministry of Finance Quarterly March 2012 $ 334.9 bn as on end Dec 2011 Unspecified
8. FDI DIPP Monthly February 2012 $ 2,211 mn as Unspecified
9. HSBC PMI Index HSBC Monthly April 2012 54.9 1st June 2012

These numbers are in no particular order and I want to add a few more like the CPI numbers, foreign tourist arrivals, HSBC PMI index but had to stop here today because I was having a hard time tracking the original source of all these numbers.

Which other numbers do you think I’ve missed here and would like to see included?
