India's IIP (index of industrial production) slump likely over, growth up in Dec: Economists


So since late last year the government has been introducing a slew of reforms to support the slowing economy, including cutting fuel subsidies, hiking rail passenger fares and opening the retail sector to foreign investors.

Still, investments have shown little sign of increasing. Capital goods production, a measure of investments in factories, shrank 4.7 percent in November, having grown just once in the eight months until then.

In its own bid to revive the flagging economy, the Reserve Bank of India cut the key repo rate for the first time in nine months, by 25 basis points to 7.75 percent in January, but warned there was limited room for further easing.
