Though this GDP growth number is the sharpest in a year, it is much below than the market's expectations. The high GDP growth during the first quarter of the current financial year is largely due to low base.
India's real GDP or Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at Constant (2011-12) prices in Q1 2022-23 is estimated to attain a level of Rs 36.85 lakh crore, as against Rs 32.46 lakh crore in Q1 2021-22, showing a growth of 13.5 per cent as compared to 20.1 percent in Q1 2021-22, the National Statistical Office (NSO) data showed.
