JP Morgan on 10 October 2014 cut its India GDP growth projection for 2014-15 to 5.1 percent from 5.3 percent.

The reason for the trimmed growth was based on weak factory output.

JP Morgan cited that the industrial output of India in August 2014 rose to 0.4 percent compared to the estimation it was very low.

They estimated the industrial output of India for August 2014 to be around 2.4 percent.

Further, the report maintained that the slower growth and a fall in oil and commodity prices increase the chance for the RBI to attain its challenging 6 percent consumer price inflation target by January 2016.

The Reserve Bank of India projects GDP to grow at around 5.5 percent in the current fiscal year ending March 2015.
