The growth of eight core industries slowed down to 4.2 percent in August against 7.3% percent in the previous month, according to data released by the commerce and industry ministry on Monday.
A contraction in refinery products, coal, fertilisers and steel production decelerated the industries' output in August 2018.
The output of crude oil and fertiliser declined by 3.7 percent and 5.3 percent respectively.
On the other hand, refinery products, coal, steel, cement and electricity grew by  5.1 percent, 2.4 percent, 3.9 percent, 14.3 percent and 5.4 percent respectively.
During the April-August period of the current fiscal, these sectors have grown 5.5 per cent as against 3 per cent in the year-ago period.
