New Delhi: The Indian economy could grow more than 7.75% in the fiscal year to March 2010, the finance ministry said in a report to parliament.
The ministry said the Economic Survey 2008/09 in July had projected GDP growth could be around 7%, with an allowance of 0.75 percentage points on either side.
“With the latest GDP data on Q2 (July-Sept) of 2009/10 being higher at 7.9%, the growth outlook for the next two quarters and for the whole year is likely to be in the upper bound of the range predicted; and may even exceed it,” the report said.
