8.  Real GDP at market prices.  GDP growth rates calculated using real GDP at factor cost, which are customarily reported in India, can vary significantly from these growth rates and have historically tended to be higher than market price GDP growth rates. Growth rates stated on this basis, starting with FY2010-11 are 8.4, 6.5, 6.9, 7.2, and 7.4 percent – see Table SAR.2 in the regional annex.
