Industrial Statistics in India

This paper discusses the different sources of industrial statistics in India, their limitations and methods of filling the data gaps. The paper argues that an enormous amount of resources is being spent on collecting data from the follow-up surveys of the Central Statistical Organisation and the Development Commissioner of Small-Scale Industries; but the database for the unorganised sector is still not reliable. A coordinated effort by the CSO and DC-SSI could, with the same amount of resources, enhance the reliability of the database.
