NEW DELHI: Projecting India's growth at 5.4-5.9 percent, the annual report card on the state of the country's economy said price rise remained a cause for worry, while calling for a complete rehaul of the subsidy regime and increasing tax revenues.

The survey, which was tabled a day ahead of the national budget for the current fiscal, also said the country will require a whopping $1 trillion investment in infrastructure over the next five years.
