India's economy grew by 5.5% in the quarter to the end of June, a sharp slowdown from the 8% in the same quarter a year earlier.
A political impasse in the country's Parliament is seen crimping the government's ability to implement policy.
Meanwhile, some observers say a reluctance on the part of central bank to lower interest rates means companies have shied away from making investments.
Failure to push through crucial reforms is also holding back India's economic growth rate, according to analysts.
The BBC garnered the views of three influential Indian business figures.
