India trying to 're-energise' growth

3 May 2013 Last updated at 03:16 BST

India's economy has seen its economic growth rate slow over the past few quarters.

Earlier this year, it lowered its growth forecast to 5% for the year to 31 March 2013, underlining the challenges it faces in reviving the sluggish economy.

There are concerns that the country's growth may be running out of steam and there have been calls for a fresh wave of economic reforms.

Raghuram Rajan, the Indian government's chief economic advisor told the BBC that the government is taking steps to re-energise growth in the country.
