India's economic growth fell to 6.3% in the quarter covering July to September of current fiscal year, mostly due to the weak performance of the manufacturing and mining sectors. India continued to be the largest economy with the quickest growth rate, despite China's economic growth of 3.9% from July to September 2022.

According to figures given by the National Statistical Office, the Indian economy expanded by 8.4% between July and September 2021–2022 (NSO). The gross domestic product (GDP) increased by 13.5% in the April-June fiscal quarter.

According to a government release, "Real GDP or GDP at Constant (2011–12) Prices) in Q2 2022–23 is estimated at Rs 38.17 lakh crore, as opposed to Rs 35.89 lakh crore in Q2 2021–22, representing a rise of 6.3% as compared to 8.4% in Q2 2021–22."
