India’s mineral production rose by 37.1pc in April 2021 versus the same month a year ago, reported the mines ministry.
The mining and quarrying sector’s production index in the month increased by 37.1pc from April 2020, according to the ministry.
In April 2021, the production levels of bauxite at 1.66mn mt.
Production of minerals bauxite, copper concentrate, iron ore, lead concentrate, zinc concentrate, among others, increased in April compared to a year ago.
The mines ministry, however, mentioned that the comparison cannot be considered conclusive as April 2020 witnessed a more stringent lockdown, which led to low baseline figures.
