India's Jan infrastructure output growth at more than a year's low of 1.8%
[NEW DELHI] India's annual infrastructure output growth slowed to more than a year's low of 1.8 per cent in January, mainly dragged down by a sharp slowdown in crude oil and natural gas production, government data showed on Monday.
The output had expanded 2.4 per cent year-on-year in December.
The infrastructure sector, which comprises coal, crude oil, oil refining, natural gas, steel, cement, electricity and fertilisers, accounts for 37.9 per cent of India's industrial output.
