NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's annual infrastructure output grew 6.7 percent in June from a year ago, government data showed on Tuesday, its fastest pace in seven months.
The growth in output compares with an upwardly revised 4.3 percent year-on-year growth in May.
During April-June, the annual output growth was 5.2 percent, data showed.
Infrastructure output, which comprises eight sectors such as coal, crude oil and electricity, accounts for nearly 40 percent of India's industrial output.
