Ok, some thoughts on the #GDP back series calculated by the #CSO. First, the MCA 21 database on which much of the new methodology is based simply did not exist before 2006-07....More importantly, it was not comparable before 2010-11.
Given the importance of MCA 21 for the GDP calculations, I suspect former chief statistician TCA Anant just did not want to bring out a back series when the MCA21 was not available... and the only alternate was CMIE Prowess data...
The problem that anyone will have in the current back series will not be about methodology. It will be about the assumptions and alternate data sources used for calculations because comparable data did not exist
