About Directorate of Economics and Statistics (DES)

The Directorate of Economics and Statistics (DES), an attached office of the Department of Agriculture and Cooperation, collects, disseminates and publishes statistics on diverse facets of agriculture and related sectors required for policy formulation by the Government. Over the years, a number of initiatives have been taken to bring about improvement in the coverage, quality and timely availability of these statistics. Recent years have witnessed growing emphasis on the need to bring about necessary changes and refinements in the existing system to make it capable of coping with the challenges posed by emerging policy issues in a more open economy.

Among the various functions of the DES, the most well known is perhaps the one relating to Minimum Support Prices (MSPs), which are fixed on the basis of the recommendations made by the Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices.
