Data void in first quarter of 2020

by Yash Shah

Pronab Sen, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Economic Statistics, estimates that around 60 per cent of the Indian economy is in a shut down. As per a report in Economic Times, his estimate is based on the assumption that only essential services will continue in full force. Economic survey, tourism survey and multi-indicator surveys have been called off for now which might affect government policy making and corporate decisions.
