Useful Information

New Image  First issue of "Regulatory Insights" a quarterly newsletter of the Centre for Energy Regulation (CER).

New Image  Economic Outlook added two new data sets under the ‘Corporate Sector’ :

  1. Aggregate financial performance of companies forming the four popular indices - S&P BSE Sensex, S&P BSE 100, Nifty 50 and Nifty Next 50.
  2. Size-wise aggregates of interim financials of companies for two sets - non-financial companies and financial companies.

The aggregates are generated by distributing the full set of companies into 10 size groups based on the size of their assets and net sales. The group consisting of the top ten per cent companies by size is classified as Decile 1 companies, the next 10 per cent of companies by size are classified as Decile 2 companies, and so on till Decile 10, which comprises the smallest 10 per cent of companies by size.

The financial aggregates are sourced from CMIE’s proprietary database ‘Prowess’ that covers financial performance of Indian companies. These comprise detailed information on all indicators from the interim profit & loss statement of companies and interim balance sheets.

Tabulations containing the two new datasets are available in the ‘Corporate Sector’ chapter on Economic Outlook, under the sub-chapter ‘Financial Performance’ and ‘Interim Financials’. Tabulations are available for both quarterly and annual frequencies.

New Image  Google launches new search engine to help scientists find the datasets they need.
