In India, the Business Confidence Index (BCI) is based on a sample size of around 300 companies covering all industry sectors, including small, medium and large enterprises from different regions. BCI is calculated as a weighted average of the Current Situation Index (CSI) and the Expectation Index (EI), with greater weight given to EI as compared to CSI. These indices are based on three questions on the performance of the economy, respondent’s industry and respondent’s company. Respondents are asked to rate the current and expected performance on a scale of 0 to 100. A score above 50 indicates positive confidence while a score above 75 would indicate strong positive confidence.
