Launching of 32nd Round of Quarterly Services and Infrastructure Outlook Survey (SIOS)–Q4:2021-22

The Reserve Bank has launched the 32nd round of the quarterly Services and Infrastructure Outlook Survey (SIOS) for the reference period January-March 2022. The survey assesses the business situation for the current quarter (Q4:2021-22) from selected companies in the services and infrastructure sectors in India and their expectations for the ensuing quarter (Q1:2022-23) based on qualitative responses on a set of indicators pertaining to demand conditions, financial conditions, employment conditions and the price situation. Owing to continued uncertainty because of the Covid-19 pandemic, an additional block has been included in this survey round for assessing the outlook on key parameters for the two subsequent quarters (Q2:2022-23 and Q3:2022-23).

2. The results for the 30th round i.e. for Q2:2021-22 were released in public domain on October 8, 2021. The results for the 31st round survey will be released shortly.

3. M/s Genesis Management & Market Research Pvt. Ltd. has been authorized to conduct the survey for January-March 2022 quarter on behalf of the Reserve Bank. While the agency will approach selected companies, other companies in the services and infrastructure sectors are also encouraged to participate in the survey by downloading the survey questionnaire from the Bank’s website, which is placed under the head ‘Forms’ (see ‘More Links’ at the bottom of the RBI Homepage) and the sub-head ‘Survey’.
