The Department of Economic Affairs, Ministry of Finance presents the Economic Survey of India in the Parliament every year, just before the Union Budget. It is prepared under the guidance of the Chief Economic Adviser attached to the Ministry of Finance.[1]


It is the Ministry's view on the annual economic development of the country. A flagship annual document of the Ministry, the Economic Survey of India reviews the developments in the Indian economy over the past financial year, summarizes the performance on major development programs, and highlights the policy initiatives of the government and the prospects of the economy in the short to medium term.

This document is presented to both Houses of Parliament during the Budget Session.

Unlike the traditional Economic Survey, the Economic Survey of 2016-17, prepared by Chief Econmic Adviser Arvind Subramanian,[2] did not have the detailed financial statistics of the Government of India.[3]
