This sector includes mining, manufacturing and construction.  Mining, manufacturing, and construction are all part of this industry. The secondary sector contributes 24% of the share in the Indian economy.



India’s gross domestic product (GDP) at current prices stood at Rs. 51.23 lakh crore (US$ 694.93 billion) in the first quarter of FY22, as per the provisional estimates of gross domestic product for the first quarter of 2021-22. The manufacturing GVA at current prices was estimated at US$ 77.47 billion in the third quarter of FY22.
