NSO’s report showing decline in rural spending scrapped

In November 2019, Business Standard’s assistant editor Somesh Jha broke an important story- that India’s consumer spending had hit a 40 year low. The report quoted the National Statistical Commission’s official survey data which reported a fall in consumer spending in 2017-18. Fast forward to February 2020 & it has come to fore that the Indian government would not be making this very important survey report public. In this episode, Suno India editor Padma Priya speaks with Somesh Jha to know more about the survey report and why the government has decided against releasing the report and what this means for the credibility for India’s statistical body.
