India's economic growth slowed to 3.1 percent in January-March and to an 11-year low of 4.2 percent for the full fiscal 2019-20 amid a drop in consumption and investment.
The data was part of a report released by the National Statistical Office (NSO) on Friday.
The National Statistical Office (NSO) has, however, upwardly revised GDP growth estimates for the first quarter of 2019-20 to 5.6 per cent (from 5 per cent), and for the second quarter to 5.1 per cent (from 4.5 per cent).
The government should make the NSO report public, so that it can be debated
The NSO report is based on the payroll data of new subscribers of various social security schemes run by ESIC, retirement fund body EPFO and Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA).
