India's industrial output in November rose a slower-than-expected 2.7 percent from a year earlier, sharply lower than the previous month's revised annual growth of 11.3 percent, government data showed on Wednesday.

The median forecast in a Reuters poll was for an annual rise of 6.6 percent.

Manufacturing output , which constitutes about 80 percent of the industrial production, rose an annual 2.3 percent in November, the federal statistics office said in a statement.

Industrial output rose 10.4 percent in the 2009/10 financial year (April-March) , faster than the 2.8 percent clocked in the previous fiscal year.
