New Delhi: Indian economy clocked a 10.08 per cent growth rate in 2006-07 under the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, according to an official data.
According to the report released on the website of the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MOSPI), the highest ever growth rate since Independence was recorded at 10.2 per cent in 1988-89 when Rajiv Gandhi was prime minister.
The back series data on GDP has been prepared by the Committee on Real Sector Statistics, constituted by the National Statistical Commission.
Not missing the oppurtunity, the Congress tweeted, "The GDP backseries data is finally out. It proves that like-for-like, the economy under both UPA terms (10 year avg: 8.1%) outperformed the Modi Govt (Avg 7.3%). The UPA also delivered the ONLY instance of double digit annual growth in modern Indian history," it said.
