NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India’s infrastructure output contracted for the third consecutive month to 1.5% in November from a year earlier, data released on Tuesday showed.

During April-November, output was flat from the year-ago period, according to the data.

Infrastructure output, which comprises eight sectors such as coal, crude oil and electricity, accounts for nearly 40% of the country’s industrial output.
