India’s GDP growth expected to be slower at 7.1% in 2016-17: CSO
07 January 2017 Current Affairs: According to growth projection released by the Central Statistics Office (CSO), India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth is expected to grow at a slower pace at 7.1% in 2016-17 as compared to 7.6% in 2015-16. This estimate is in sync with the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) economic growth forecast and is largely based on data from the first seven months of the year.  The slowdown is chiefly due to an industrial slowdown.

Manufacturing sector: It is estimated to grow by 7.4% in 2016-17 as compared to growth of 9.3% in 2015-16.
