Decline in fourth quarter GDP growth on account of multiple factors, not demonetisation, says Finance Minister Arun Jaitley

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday said that the decline in the GDP growth for the fourth quarter was on account of multiple factors including the global situation, dismissing suggestions that it was on account of demonetisation.
The minister further said some slowdown was visible even prior to demonetisation of Rs 500/1000 currency notes announced by the government on November 8 last year.
"Seven-eight per cent growth is fairly reasonable level of growth and very good by global standard and reasonable by Indian standard," Jaitley said while addressing media on completion of three years of the Modi government.
