Discrepancies in offcicial estimates of production and employment in textile and clothing sector
Censtral Statistical Organisation in its revised series has lowered its estimates of gross domestic product in textile and garment industry for the year 1995-96 to Rs26105 crore compared to its original estimates of Rs40016 crore, both at current prices. This has resulted in a decline in shae of textile and garment industry in the country's GDP to around 2.5 per cent compared to its share of 4 per cent in the original series for the year 1995-96. This is mainly due to the fact that our knowledge about textile industry remains very incomplete, despite its importance due to all indicators, whether income generation, employment or exports.
