Reversing a five-quarter slide in growth, Indian economy bounced back from a three-year low to expand by 6.3 per cent in July-September as manufacturing picked up momentum and businesses adjusted to the new regime.

The growth in the second quarter of 2017-18 compares to 5.7 per cent in April-June, the lowest growth rate since the took charge, and 7.5 per cent in the September quarter of the previous fiscal.

The Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister (EAC-PM), in a statement, said Debroy is of the view that in the wake of various steps taken by the government, "this GDP growth trend will continue in future quarters also".

He added that the EAC-PM has taken several initiatives that will contribute to stable economic growth and employment.
