India's infrastructure output growth hits 13-month high in Feb
[NEW DELHI] India's infrastructure output grew an annual 5.7 per cent in February, its fastest pace in at least 13 months, mainly driven by a surge in production of cement and fertilizers, government data showed on Thursday.
Infrastructure accounts for nearly 38 per cent of India's industrial output.
Cement production last month was up 13.5 per cent from a year earlier. Fertilizer output grew an annual 16.3 per cent, the data showed.
