Select the correct answer using the code given below:
A
1 only
B

C
Both 1 and 2
D
Neither 1 nor 2
Question 98 Explanation: 

Both are dealt with by the Central Statistics Office of the MoSPI (there are other ministries/departments that assist in data collection and/or other associated activities, but these surveys are managed and published by the CSO).

  • ASI survey is annual but its summary results get delayed by 2-3 years and detailed results take even longer. NSSO's unorganised sector survey is quinquennial so information on inter year could only be estimated. Even NSSO survey results become available with a considerable time lag. Most countries, therefore, have an index of industrial production (IIP) as a short term indicator of industrial performance.
  • Index of Industrial Production is compiled and published every month with a time lag of six weeks from the reference month.
