India to grow at 5 year high of 7.6% in 2015-16
Indian economy will grow at a 5-year high of 7.6 percent in the fiscal ending March, overtaking a slowing China, on the back of improvement in manufacturing and farm sectors.

Gross domestic product (GDP) will expand by 7.6 percent in 2015-16 compared with 7.2 percent a year earlier, according to the Central Statistics Office (CSO). The previous high at 8.9 percent was recorded in 2010-11.

China grew 6.9 percent in 2015 while Russia contracted 3.7 percent. Brazil is forecast to shrink 3.7 percent. However, India's GDP growth slowed to 7.3 percent in October-December, from the revised 7.7 percent of the previous quarter.

It, however bettered the 6.6 percent in the same period of the last fiscal. On the GDP data, Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das said: "The direction of the numbers is very positive. The policy and reform measure the government has undertaken in last one and a half years are beginning to show results."

The economic growth projection of 7.6 percent for the current fiscal by CSO has surpassed the estimates of the Finance Ministry, Reserve Bank and other multilateral agencies.

The CSO's estimate is higher than the Finance Ministry's mid-year economic analysis, which projected a growth rate of 7-7.5 percent for the current fiscal. It is also higher than 7.4 percent estimated by the Reserve Bank of India.

IMF has projected India's growth at 7.3 percent while Asian Development Bank expected India's GDP to expand at 7.4 percent in 2015-16.

Moody's Investors Service has put the corresponding figure at 7 percent for this fiscal. "Going ahead, we hope to see a continued momentum on the reforms front. We look forward to the Union Budget giving a positive direction to the economy.

The focus should clearly be on introducing measures to further boost domestic investments and demand," Ficci Secretary General A Didar Singh said.
