OVERVIEW OF ECONOMY

A more robust economic performance than was earlier indicated emerges from revised data based on an updated base year, wider coverage of goods and services, and the inclusion of tax data to estimate economic activity. Real growth in India was previously estimated as a change in volume, but the new series estimates value added at each stage.

The government's initial estimates for Fiscal Year 2014 (ending 31 March 2015) show that economic growth accelerated to 7.4%. Agriculture growth slipped to 1.1% in FY2014 largely because the monsoon was erratic, particularly affecting the summer crop. The production of food grains contracted by 3.2% in comparison to FY2013.

After growing by 4.5% in FY2013, industry accelerated to 5.9% in FY2014, helped by a 6.8% expansion in manufacturing. These estimates may be a tad optimistic, however, as they assume manufacturing indicate a more modest upturn. The production of capital goods expanded after 3 years in the red. However, consumer durables continued to decline. Improved coal production helped double the growth of electricity generation over the previous year's rate.
