Bouncing back from a three-year low, Indian economy has reversed a five-quarter slide in GDP growth to expand by 6.3 % in July-September quarter. According to data from the Central Statistics Office (CSO), the GDP for Q2 stood at Rs 31.66 lakh crore, registering a growth of 6.3%, up from 5.7% reported during the first quarter of 2017-18. Chief Statistician T C A Anant hinted that the GDP numbers could be revised upwards as businesses uncertain of the new Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime may have accounted for lesser taxes. While the government was upbeat with the positive growth which came just ahead of the Gujarat Assembly polls, Opposition leaders said this was too early to arrive at a conclusion and government should wait longer to beat its chest.

Quarterly GDP growth accelerates to 6.3% vs 5.7% in the previous quarter.P Chidambaram, Congress leader and former Union MinisterHappy that the July-Sep quarter has registered a growth rate of 6.3%. This a PAUSE in the declining trend of the last five quarters. But we cannot say now whether this will mark an upward trend in the growth rate. We should wait for the growth rates over the next 3-4 quarters before we can reach a definite conclusion. 6.3% is far below the PROMISE of the Modi government and far below the POTENTIAL of a well-managed Indian economy.Randeep S Surjewala, Congress spokespersonImprovement of GDP numbers is an encouraging sign, but it is just a ‘Temporary Pause’ from the ‘Downward Trend’. India’s Economic Stress continues; #GDP far below at 6.3% compared to 7.5% of Q2 of last year! -A close scrutiny reveals the Real Picture. No amount of ‘Spinning’,‘Sugar Coating’ and ‘Bloating on figures; will alter the Ground Reality that has hit us hard! Agriculture Sector Growth is Abysmal & Core Sector Growth is Stagnant & Manufacturing Down – What is the Modi Government celebrating.Mamata Banerjee, West Bengal CMGDP figures out. Again no growth. No jobs.Effects of note ban scam & unplanned GST continue to damage economy. Only talking. No performance. Last year Q2 GDP growth was 7.5% and this year it is 6.3%. This Govt only bhashan, no action.Chandrajit Banerjee, Director General, CIIThe rebound in GDP growth to 6.3% is noteworthy and a great confidence booster. The revival of the #GDP growth print reinforces the perception that economy is on a robust recovery phase and the short-term disruptions caused by demonetisation and GST are behind us. CII believes that eco performance wd be better in the 2nd half as companies move to execute projects on the back of improved demand.
