NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's export growth picked up in July, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said while addressing the upper house of parliament on Tuesday.

India's exports rose 11.64 percent in July to $25.83 billion from the previous month, but the trade deficit was almost unchanged at $12.27 billion, keeping pressure on the current account deficit and the beleaguered rupee, data released earlier in the month showed.
