Basic Statistics For Local Level Development (BSLLD)



The 73rd and 74th amendments of the Constitution envisaged a major reform of Governance which gives more powers to the Panchayat Raj and Nagarapalikas in connection with formulation & implementation of their Annual plan. The Statistical Commission of India, headed by Dr. C. Rangarajan felt the need for local level planning & the significance of generation of local level data. In view of the recommendations of the Statistical Commission in 2001, the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation, Government of India launched the World Bank aided India Statistical Strengthening Project (ISSP) which is being implemented across the states in India.
