NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's annual infrastructure output grew 3.6 percent in May, mainly driven by a pick up in refinery output and electricity generation, government data showed on Friday.

The output grew a revised 2.8 percent year-on-year in April.

Annual growth in refinery production rose 5.4 percent last month from 0.2 percent in April, while electricity production rose 6.4 percent on year compared with a 5.4 percent growth in April.
