To accelerate investment, need to take quick decision: Chidambaram
Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram has emphasized once again that there is a need to take quick decisions to accelerate investments and also to remove all bottlenecks to investments. He was commenting on the India's FY13 Q1 GDP growth rate of 5.5 per cent announced by CSO.
On the occasion, Chidambaram said, "The first quarter GDP numbers for 2012-13 were released by CSO today. Growth in real GDP (GDP at factor cost at constant (2004-05) prices) for the first quarter (Q1) of 2012-13 is placed at 5.5 per cent as against 8.0 per cent in Q1 of 2011-12. This is a little more than the growth rate of 5.3 per cent achieved in Q4 of 2011-12."
According to Chidambaram, "After the continuous reduction in the growth rate in successive quarters beginning in the fourth quarter of 2010-11, this is the first time when quarterly growth rate has exceeded the growth rate in the previous quarter."
He added that Of course, the decline in the growth of fixed investment (0.7 per cent in Q1 of 2012-13 as against 14.7 per cent in Q1 of 2011-12) is a source of concern to Government. It emphasizes once again the need to take quick decisions to accelerate investments, especially removing all bottlenecks to investments in the manufacturing sector.
