India's infrastructure output growth slows to 1 percent in February

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India’s annual infrastructure output growth slowed to 1.0 percent in February, the lowest level in at least 13 months, mainly dragged down by a contraction in production of crude oil and natural gas, government data showed on Friday.

Overall output grew an annual 3.4 percent in the previous month.

The output growth came in at 4.4 percent for the first 11 months of the current fiscal year which ends in March 2017.
