外文标题：Fresh data shows Indian economy grew faster than China’s in March quarter
NEW DELHI: India's economy grew faster than China's in the quarter through March, data showed on Friday, but a sharp downward revision for the previous quarter has added to doubts about the accuracy of a new method used to measure economic activity.
Asia's third-largest economy grew 7.5 per cent year-on-year in the last quarter, outstripping China's 7 per cent growth in the same quarter and beating a Reuters poll of economists who forecast 7.3 per cent growth.
Previously, India had celebrated that its growth was faster than its larger neighbour in the December quarter, but on Friday the Central Statistics Office sharply revised the number down to 6.6 per cent from 7.5 per cent, further distorting the picture.
"At face value, today's GDP figures for (January-March) suggest that India is the fastest-growing major economy in the world," said Shilan Shah, economist at Capital Economics.
“表面上来看，今天的GDP数据（1-3月）表明，印度是世界上发展速度最快的大型经济体。”资本经济公司的经济学家 Shilan Shah说。
"In reality though, the GDP data remain wildly inconsistent with numerous other indicators that point to continued slack in the economy."

good news indeed aND we are proud of India

First of all these are rigged numbers and not reliable . The new methodological statistics used has been laughed at internationally . Read BBC story on this news item . Modi Sardar is all about hype and hood winking . Car sales have dropped significantly and that means steel out put and sales are down . We are staring at a big drought and a drop in food grains production , which accounts for a potential three percent growth which is about forty percent . If agriculture production has been taken out of calculation we would sound great even after one year. Government should concentrate on work rather than on silly tricks

Has this increased GDP growth improved the purchasing power of the poorest of the poor?
One year into Job, Modi government needed some good news. Here it is. Wow! There should be huge party in next month because this is not sustainable.
why people don't feel this growth? ? who is benefiting from it? I don't see any common people. Are these real number? or manipulation of statistics? ?

So what...its only one measly quarter. China has been on the top for the past 20 years! The foreign exchange it has accumulated is all put to good use. China is at the forefront of development. Indian government has been mired in one scandal after another. We have been bleeding money, opportunities, and most importantly TALENT.
