JK to start 6th Economic Survey from December
Coordination Committees Constituted;Process To Take 6 Months
Jammu, Nov 15: Jammu and Kashmir is likely to conduct the 6th Economic Survey 2012-13 from next month to estimate various parameters of economy.
Sources in the Directorate of Economics and Statistics told Greater Kashmir that the six-month long exercise was likely to start by next month and the preparations for the process were already underway.
“The State level coordination committee for the survey, under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary Madhav Lal, and 22 district level committees, each to be headed by District Development Commissioners, have already been constituted,” sources said. They further said that the committees would review the progress of work and take appropriate measures for smooth conduct of the survey within the prescribed time frame.
The State level committee, they said, comprises of Principal Secretary Planning department, Secretary Education department, Secretary Rural Development Department, Director Economics and Statistics and Joint Director Economics and Statistics besides others.
The district level committees will be headed by District Development Commissioner as chairman while four other members including Chief Education Officer, Senior Superintendent of Police, Assistant Commissioner Development and District Statistical and Evaluation Officer are its members.
Sources said the last Economic Survey was held in 2005 and 6th Survey was due in 2010, but due to Social and Economic Census which was being conducted that year, the Economic Survey was deferred.
They informed that the Economic Survey is the complete official count of all establishments/ units located within the geographical boundaries of the State involved in any economic activity of either agricultural (excluding crop production and plantation) or non-agricultural sectors of the economy, engaged in production and/or distribution of goods or services not for sole purpose of own consumption.
The data generated under the census forms the basis for estimation of macro level aggregates of various parameters of economy and for improving the estimation of State income and related aggregates from time to time.
“The Economic Survey also provides information in respect of distribution of establishments employing at least one hired worker and also estimates of employment while as the follow-up surveys provide information on inputs, outputs, investments etc. for each sector of the non-agricultural economy,” sources said.
