The appropriate NIC code is determined/ assessed by the value added by production of different products and services or net revenue derived from various activities, i.e. the industry code of the primary manufactured product (output) of that establishment. In case of multi-product establishments, the appropriate NIC code is determined by the category of the product contributing the maximum value added for the establishment. Where such assessment is not possible, classification may be done in terms of gross revenue attributed to the products, or services of the establishments, the number of persons employed for various activities.
