and also last year, manufacturing sector, which accounts for 80% of the index, declined 1.2% from 13.8%.

The government sought to rescue the manufacturers earlier this month, by announcing an across-the-board 4% cut in excise duty.

During the month, there was a growth by 4.4% in the electricity sector, battering 4.2% output of the year-ago period, while mining sector grew by a slower 2.8% against 5.1% in the previous year's comparable period.
