Economy grew 4.5% in December quarter

01 March, 2013

India’s economy grew at a worse-than-expected 4.5 per cent in the quarter ending December 31, hurt by a slowdown in agriculture, mining and manufacturing, government data showed on Thursday.

Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast growth of 5 per cent. The country’s economy grew at a lower-than-expected 5.3 per cent in the quarter ending in September.

The Indian economy has lost momentum in recent years. Preliminary estimates earlier this month showed the economy is on track to grow just 5 per cent in the current fiscal year to March.

The manufacturing sector grew an annual 2.5 per cent during the quarter while farm output rose just 1.1 per cent, the data showed. Mining fell by 1.4 per cent.
