India's infrastructure sector output slumped 2.5% in February from a year earlier, government data showed on Monday, in a sign Asia's third largest economy has yet to escape from the worst slowdown in a decade.

Infrastructure output for eight sectors -- coal, crude oil, oil refinery, natural gas, steel, cement, electricity and fertilisers -- grew at an annual 2.6% in the April-February period compared with 5.2% a year earlier.

The infrastructure sector accounts for 37.9% of India's industrial output.
