Let experts review GDP data: ex-CEA

Amid a raging controversy over the revised economic growth numbers, former Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian has called for an investigation by experts to clear doubts and build confidence, while noting that the “puzzle” about the data needs to be explained.
