Explosive revelation by Subramanian Swamy while addressing a gathering of CAs in Ahmedabad on 23rd Dec, 2017 as reported by Indian Express dt 24th Dec, 2017.

Dr Swamy has alleged fudging of Statistics by the  Central Statistics Organisation (CSO) under union Min. of Statistics &Programme Implementation ( MOSPI ) in computing quaterly GDP.

Incidentally, the CSO was founded by Dr Swamy’s  father late Sitaram Subramanian , a well known mathematician and was a one time Director of the Central Statistical Institute, supposedly a rival to P C Mahalanobis who was the founder of ISI, Kolkatta.

Dr Subramanian Swamyreceived the BSc ( Hons) degree in Mathematics from Hindu College of DU and Masters in Statistics from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkatta.He Holds a PhD in Economics from Harvard University .

In view of above , reinforced by CSO officials’ confession of  “ pressures” from above ( Read as Finance ministry ) , Swamy’s innuendos against the CSO’s allegedly unethical practices can’t be taken lightly.A damage control exercise in MOSPI, necessitated by electoral compulsions, is underway.

Prof T C A Anant present Secretary(MOSPI)-cum-Chief Statistician of India will have much to explain to the Parliamentary Standing Committee.Was he not kept in the loop by his DG and ADG in CSO? The present CSI was initially  appointed  in June 2010 for five years. He got three years extension till June 2015 followed by yet another extension that expires in January 2018. Total 8 years He is now seeking extension of his tenure as CSI beyond 8th year beyond Jan 2018.

Heads will roll both in MOSPI and Min of Finance. Chaos, noise , anarchy in Parliament.

In order to be fair , I can only say that the practice of unwarranted interference by MOF in MOSPI’s GDP calculation, sorry, manipulation, has been going on covertly for several decades with full knowledge of Secretaries,Ministers and in collusion with senior officers of both ministries. The tool of GDP was misused with impunity during the Congress-led UPA era. The existing dispensation followed the unscrupulous tradition laid down by its illustrious predecessor under,possibly, electoral compulsions.

PM Modi was expected to expose the vicious UPA practice , instead of giving a free hand to MOSPI  and Finance Ministry in pursuing the same.

All things considered, India must thank Dr Subramanian Swamy for uncovering the malpractices.

Thanks for the distinct tips shared on this blog site. I have seen that many insurance firms offer customers generous savings if they elect to insure many cars together. A significant number of households own several automobiles these days, particularly those with older teenage kids still located at home, along with the savings in policies might soon mount up. So it pays to look for a good deal.

Hi! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!
