NEW DELHI, Dec 2 (Reuters) - India's infrastructure sector
output fell 0.6 percent year-on-year in October
mainly on lower natural gas and coal production, after growing
at its fastest clip in one year the previous month, government
data showed on Monday.
Output grew at 8 percent in September.
During the first seven months of the current fiscal year,
infrastructure output grew 2.6 percent from a year earlier,
Monday's data showed.
The index comprises coal, crude oil, oil refinery, natural
gas, steel, cement, electricity and fertiliser production and
accounts for 37.9 percent of India's industrial output, which
expanded just 1 percent during the 2012/13 fiscal year.
