New Delhi, Sep 13 (ANI): India's economy is expected to grow 5.3 percent this fiscal year, sharply lower than an earlier estimate of 6.4 percent but higher than last year, the prime minister's economic advisory panel said on Friday.

Rangarajan, the chairman of the Prime Minister's Economic Advisory Council. The advisory council also said that containing the fiscal deficit within the budgeted target of 4.8 percent of gross domestic product could be a challenge. Sep 13, 2013
