Mumbai: The Centre for Monitoring Indian
Economy has revised its GDP growth forecast for the current
fiscal to 6.7 per cent from 6.2 per cent announced last month.

"Real GDP growth for 2009-10 is revised upwards to 6.7
per cent from a 6.2 per cent growth projected in the previous

remain healthy in the remaining months of the fiscal, CMIE
said.
The real GDP in the first-half of the fiscal was
better-than-expected at seven per cent against 5.8 per cent
registered during second half of the last financial
