India’s economy expanded at its slowest pace in over six years, government data showed on Friday. Growth in the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) stood at 5 per cent in the first quarter of current financial year (2019-20), compared with 5.8 per cent in the previous quarter, and 8.0 per cent in the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Decelerating for the fifth quarter in a row, economic expansion came in at the slowest pace since the quarter ended March 2013, when it had stood at 4.3 per cent. A slowdown in sales of cars to biscuits and lakhs of estimated job cuts across sectors plagued the economic growth of the country, say analysts. (Audio in Hindi)
