New Delhi - SPA

India\'s economy grew at a much lower pace of 5.5 per cent year-on-year in the April-June quarter, confirming the slowdown in Asia\'s third-largest economy, dpa quoted official data as showing Friday. The figure compared to the 8-per-cent growth in the same period a year ago, according to a statement released by the Central Statistics Office. But it was slightly better than the 5.3-per-cent growth in the previous quarter ending March. Economists had predicted a gross domestic product growth rate of 5.2 per cent. The disappointing economic performance was attributed to a mere 0.2-per-cent growth in the manufacturing sector against 7.3 per cent in the same quarter of the previous year. Farming growth also dropped from 3.7 per cent to 2.9 per cent, the data showed. India had set a target of double-digit annual growth to eliminate poverty and provide jobs for its increasing population of young people, but growth rates have fallen sharply over recent quarters. The latest figures have raised questions over whether the country will be able to meet its growth forecast for the current financial year of 6-6.5 per cent.
