New Delhi: India’s growth in the July-to-September quarter “seems disappointing," economic affairs secretary Subhash Chandra Garg said in a tweet on Friday.

Earlier, government data showed that Asia’s third-largest economy grew a lower-than-expected 7.1% in the quarter on an annualised basis, from a more than two-year high of 8.2% in the previous quarter.

Garg, one of the finance ministry’s top officials, however, said manufacturing growth at 7.4% and agriculture growth at 3.8% were “steady".
