NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said on Friday that industrial growth was encouraging.
India’s industrial output grew in double-digits for the seventh straight month in April, helped by buoyant domestic consumer demand, a revival in exports, and higher infrastructure spending.
India’s industrial output rose at a much faster-than-expected 17.6 percent in April from a year earlier, data showed on Friday, the strongest since 17.7 percent in December 2009.
