Guwahati: Reserve Bank of India governor D. Subbarao said the central bank will take Thursday’s advance numbers for fiscal year economic growth into account, while framing monetary policy for its next review in March.
India’s gross domestic product (GDP) is estimated to grow an annual 5% in the 2012/13 fiscal year, the government said on Thursday, signalling that the worst economic slump in a decade could be far deeper than earlier anticipated.
