Estimation and Measurement of India’s Digital Economy

The project aims to create a measurement framework and estimate India’s digital economy (gross value added [GVA] and employment). It will identify Key Performance Indicators to support this assessment and incorporate it into a measurement framework that can be used to continue tracking the size of the digital economy. Projections of GVA and employment attributed to the digital economy will also be made for 2023-24 till 2029-30. The estimation exercise will capture aspects of the digital economy that have hitherto been difficult to estimate, such as e-commerce and emerging tech, through stakeholder consultations and primary surveys. Based on the analysis, suitable policy recommendations for boosting the size and growth of the digital economy of India will be provided.
