The government is looking to take corrective measures to improve industrial output, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said on Wednesday.

Mukherjee also said he expects the industrial output numbers to improve in the next four months.

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.

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