New Delhi: The government on Friday slightly revised downwards India’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth for 2014-15 to 7.2 percent from the 7.3 percent estimated earlier, according to an official statement here.

The GDP growth rate for 2013-14 has also been revised downwards to 6.6 percent from the earlier 6.9 percent.

The CSO said estimates of GDP and other figures for the years 2011-12 to 2013-14 have also undergone revision, as a result of latest available data on agricultural and industrial production.

In terms of real gross value added (GVA) at 2011-12 basic prices, there has been a growth of 7.1 percent in 2014-15 as compared to a growth of 6.3 percent in 2013-14. GVA for 2014-15 was earlier estimated at 7.2 percent.

The downward revision in GVA for 2014-15 is owing to a subdued performance of the secondary sector comprising manufacturing, electricity, gas, water supply & other utility services, and construction, the government said.

The per capita net national income at current prices has been estimated as Rs.79,412 for 2013-14 and at Rs.86,879 in 2014-15.

The per capita private final consumption expenditure at current prices, for the years 2013-14 and 2014-15 is estimated at Rs.52,022 and Rs.56,772, respectively.

Gross savings during 2014-15 is estimated at Rs.41.17 lakh crore as compared to Rs.37.25 lakh crore during 2013-14.

The rate of gross saving to gross national disposable income (GNDI) for the year 2014-15 is estimated at 32.3 percent, which was the same as in 2013-14.

Household sector contribution to gross saving declined from 63.4 percent in 2013-14 to 57.8 percent in 2014-15 which the government attributed to a decline in household savings in physical assets, which has declined from Rs.14.61 lakh crore in 2013-14 to Rs.13.79 lakh crore in 2014-15.

Dis-saving of the central government has decreased from 4 percent in 2013-14 to 3.2 percent in 2014-15, the CSO added in this regard.

In gross capital formation (GCF), while the highest contributor – non-financial corporations’ – share has been rising steadily from 45.7 percent in 2011-12 to 52 percent in 2014-15, the share of the household sector has declined from 43.4 percent in 2011-12 to 33.9 percent in 2014-15.

Gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) amounted to Rs.38.44 lakh crore in 2014-15 as against Rs 35.64 lakh crore in 2013-14, the government said.(Inputs from IANS)(Picture Courtesy: m.indiatvnews.com)

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
