NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India’s industrial output in January rose 1.7 percent from a year earlier, lower than forecast, government data showed on Tuesday.

A Reuters poll of economists had predicted a growth of 2.0 percent for January.

January’s growth was much slower than the upwardly revised 2.6 percent year-on-year increase in December, the data showed.
