The Government requires various kinds of information for planning for economic and social development on scientific lines and the statistical data goes a long way in helping the planners and policy makers in this direction. Without basic statistics, no useful and purposeful planning can be possible and therefore the Government looks forward to have statistical source agencies in the States/Union Territories with the idea of producing an exhaustive database which may cater to the emergent data needs of a dynamic economy.
