India's economy grew by 4.7 percent in the last financial year to March 2014, data showed Friday, underscoring challenges facing new Prime Minister Narendra Modi to revive Asia's third-largest economy.
The expansion figure marked the second straight year of below five percent growth. The figure was also below the 4.9 percent growth forecast by the previous Congress-led government.
Growth for the final quarter to March was 4.6 percent year-on-year.
