NEW DELHI: India's industrial output rose 29.3per cent in May from a year earlier, government data showed on Monday.

Analysts polled by Reuters had expected a rise of 32per cent in May. The sharp rise was due to base effects as the country was under a strict lockdown during the same period last year.
