Slowdown: How India's key sectors fared in FY12

India's GDP growth in 2011-12 has been the lowest in nine years. The Indian economy is estimated to grow by 6.9 per cent in 2011-12, after having grown at the rate of 8.4 per cent in each of the two preceding years.

At sectoral level, growth is estimated to be 2.5 per cent for 2011-12 for agriculture and allied sectors, a little lower than expected. However, this has to be seen in light of the high growth of 7 per cent achieved in 2010-11, says the Economic Survey report.

While agriculture constituted about 53.1 per cent of the GDP in 1950-52, it has fallen considerably to 13.9 per cent in 2011-12. However, service sector which was 16.6 per cent of the GDP has grown to 27 per cent.
