Growth in Agri GVA deflator shows a declining trend in comparison to growth in other sectoral GVA deflators

e of inflation in services (such as health and education) vis-à-vis the rate of inflation in Consumer Food Price Index (CFPI). A similar picture emerges if we check the performance of Agri gross value added (GVA) deflator vis-à-vis other sectoral GVA deflators. After calculating the various sectoral GVA deflators, it could be observed that the year-on-year (y-o-y) growth rate in Agri GVA deflator (an alternative measure of inflation)

No achhe din for the farmer -Ashok Gulati & Ranjana Roy

ncern, however, is with the performance in agriculture, which engages almost 47 per cent of the country’s workforce. Its growth, therefore, has a significant influence on poverty.

This is a massive drop of 46 per cent. The CSO clearly states that

-The Indian Express October-December 2018 is also the second consecutive quarter where growth in gross value added (GVA) from agriculture has been lower in nominal than in real terms. The country’s farm sector output may have grown by just 2.7 per cent year-on-year in October-December 2018, the lowest in 11 quarters.

owest in six consecutive quarters. Analysts expect that this slowdown will last till mid-year at least. Looking deeper than these headline numbers, a much more serious picture emerges.

This is not some seasonal dip: in the third quarter of 2017-18, GVA growth was 4.6%, al

The numbers game -Puja Mehra

One particular statistical stunt that the CSO has introduced is a structural break in its back series in 2011-12. Let us understand this in detail. Macroeconomic aggregates such as GDP and GVA (gross value added) are estimated every year at the prices of a selected year, the base year. Base years are periodically updated, and the GDP for every year all the way back to 1950-51 is then re-estimated. In 2015, the base year was updated from 2004-05
