Economy can grow 8 pct in coming fiscal year - Jayant Sinha | Reuters

NEW DELHI The Indian economy can grow by 8 percent in the coming fiscal year as long as there is a favourable monsoon after two years of drought, deputy finance minister Jayant Sinha said on Saturday.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Economic Times Global Business Summit, Sinha said that a favourable rainy season could add between 0.5 and 1 percentage point to growth in Asia's third-largest economy.
