GDP back series data not official, says government as Congress steps up criticism of NDA's track record on Indian economy
New Delhi: The Union government on Sunday said that the gross domestic product (GDP) back series data released last week were not official estimates, while the National Statistical Commission (NSC) said the calculations were still a work in progress. The statements come at a time when the Congress is using the data to defend its track record and management of the economy during its 10-year tenure, in contrast with the performance of the National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA’s) four years in office.
