Annual Survey of Services Sector

The ASI has been conducted since 1959 to obtain comprehensive and detailed data with the objectives of estimating the contribution of manufacturing industries as a whole to the national income by type industry, systematic study of the structure of the industry by type of industry, occasional analysis of the various factors influencing industries in the country to facilitate the construction of comprehensive, factual and systematic bases for formulation of policy.

Keeping in view and owing to the data gap for building national accounts estimates for the other sectors of the economy, there has been frequent discussions and demand for conducting similar surveys for the big units of the non-manufacturing sector. This demand proposes to carry out Annual Survey of Services Sector(ASSS) on the similar footings of ASI based on the frame using the data of Economic Census,2005.
