    India's second quarter GDP came in more or less on expected lines at 6.3 per cent for the period ending Sept 30, 2017. The gross value added (GVA) was slighly below estimates at 6.1 per cent for the second quarter. GVA is an important number that and a productivity metric that measures the contribution to an economy, producer, sector or region.

    India's first quarter GDP had slumped to a 3-year low of 5.7 per cent largely due to the GST implementation and the impact of de-monetization and the latest quarterly numbers suggested some sort of recovery in the economy.
