NEW DELHI -- India's economic growth remained virtually flat at 4.7% in the quarter ended December, official data showed on Friday, indicating that a recovery will take longer, especially when the coronavirus epidemic that began in China has clouded the global outlook.

In the previous three months ended last September, preliminary growth slipped to a 26-quarter low of 4.5% on the year, down from 5% in the April-June period. This was blamed on sluggish investment and weak consumer demand.
