India's bright GDP just a small step in long road to sustained revival

People watch a large screen displaying India's benchmark share index on the facade of BSE building in MumbaiOptimism that sunny growth figures herald an economic revival in India is probably misplaced - in fact there is little hard evidence to support the idea that Asia's third-largest economy is heading for a broader and sustained rebound anytime soon. India's economy grew 5.7 percent in the June quarter compared with a year earlier, the strongest pace in 2-1/2 years, accelerating from 4.6 percent in the March quarter thanks to a rebound in industrial activity. "The uptick in GDP growth was mainly driven by front-loading of government expenditure," says Izumi Devalier, an economist with HSBC in Hong Kong.

A woman walks under high-tension power lines leading from a Tata Power sub station in Mumbai's suburbsPower cuts hit large areas of Indian financial capital Mumbai on Tuesday following a technical glitch at an electricity generation unit, but back-up generators at banks and brokerages ensured that financial business was largely unaffected. Tata Power Company Ltd said the cuts, which began at 0945 IST in Mumbai, were caused by a technical fault at one of its units and forced it to switch off power to some areas of the city, including some business districts. It did not say what had caused the fault at the power station but that it was working to get supplies back on by the end of the day. Overloading of the state transmission network prevented local electricity distribution companies from importing extra power available elsewhere in India into Mumbai, Tata said.
