Eight core sector industries registered seven-month high growth of 6.7 per cent in June this year. 

According to the data released today by the commerce and industry ministry, eight sectors including coal, refinery products, fertilisers, steel and cement showed better performance due to better outcome by cement, refinery and coal segments.
