Tomar said that the NSSO
, which is a nodal agency or conducting surveys and collecting data, has not conducted any survey on income per agricultural household since 2013.
However, the most dependable and authentic figure in this regard comes from NSSO
which the government wants to keep under wraps, probably till the elections are over.
According to NSSO
data, people of rural India spend most on the use of mobile phones and telephones among all services, accounting for 25.33%.
also reports that coverage by government-funded insurance schemes has risen to 13.1 percent of rural India and 12 percent of urban population, it added.
Commission sources said their affidavit relied on the NSSO
and Tendulkar Committee findings, and did not make any independent claim.
However, such an exercise is not feasible with the secondary information available in the NSSO
But our latter analysis focuses only on the conventional definition of 'child labour', where any child of age 5-14 working in status categories 11 to 51 by NSSO
is deemed as child labour.
The data from the NSSO
suggest that there are an estimated 29 doctors per 10,000 people in India, while the data collected from the registry institution estimates the figure to be as high as 38.
The same was true for educated people: "For educated rural females, the unemployment rate ranged from 9.7 per cent to 15.2 per cent during 2004-05 to 2011-12 which rose to 17.3 per cent in 2017-18," the newspaper quoted the NSSO
report as saying.
Shiv Sena's comments came after the NSSO
report, released on May 31, showed the GDP growth rate plunging to 5.8 per cent during the January to March quarter of the financial year 2018-19.
This is why the NSSO
Report was kept under the wraps.
