The government is the largest generator of information. By sheer size, it is also the largest consumer of information. Various arms of the government find CMIE services useful because these complement the official statistical system, because they deliver the information in an easily accessible manner and because the data delivered is usually much more updated.

Governments use CMIE services in policy making and also in administration. The best publicly known example of application in policy making is the use of Prowess in official GST report. And, the best example of application in administration is the use of Prowess in transfer pricing taxation by the Central Board of Direct Taxes.

The Economic Intelligence Service and the Industry Analysis Service are useful to all economic ministries of the government at the Centre and also at the State level.

State governments are intensive users of CapEx as this helps them track new investment projects being set up in the country as a whole and in their own State. State governments also use States of India as this is a comprehensive compilation of state-level data for all major and minor states of India.

Consumer Pyramids is a useful complement to CapEx and States of India for state governments. This service provides detailed estimates of income and other parameters of the households of the state. For the larger states, estimates are disaggregated by homogeneous regions and this helps understand the intra-state disparities of growth of the people of the state.
