In the latest estimates released by the Indian government statistical office, Indian economy has grown at a pace of 5.4% in the October-December quarter of 2021. For the financial year 2021-22, the statistical office has predicted a growth rate of 8.9% which is lower than the first advance estimate of 9.2% released by them earlier in the year.
