Indian Economy Overview: Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Sectors

  • Tertiary = Service related.
  • Sector share towards GDP : Tertiary (60%)> Secondary (28%)> Primary(12%).

India has shifted to a new GDP series. The organization responsible for calculating national income – CSO (Central Statistical Organisation) – adopted a new series based on the year 2011-12 instead of the previous 2004-05. which is explained below.

National Income:

The total income of a nation can be expressed using many parameters like GDP, GNP, NDP, NNP, etc. Sub-variations like GDP at factor cost, GVA at the basic price, GDP at market price, etc.


  • Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the total money value of all final goods and services produced in the economic territories of a country in a given year.
  • In simple terms, GDP is the product of the number of goods (and services) produced with their final price (value).
  • GDP can be expressed at the constant price and at the current price. Constant price calculations are inflation-adjusted (real GDP), while current price calculations include the inflation component too (nominal GDP).
  • GDP can also be expressed at factor cost and market prices.

Factor Cost vs Basic Price vs Market Price:

  • General Relationship between Factor Cost and Market Price: Factor Cost + Indirect Tax – Subsidies = Market Price.
  • The relationship between Factor Cost and Basic Price: Factor cost + production tax – production subsidies = Basic prices.
  • The relationship between Basic Price and Market Price: Basic Price + Product tax – Product Subsidy = Market Price.
  • Note: Thus, it is clear that market price includes both product tax as well as production tax while excludes both product and production subsidies.
  • Basic price:  Basic prices exclude any taxes on products the producer receives from the purchaser and passes on to the government (Eg: GST or Sales Tax or Services Tax) but include any subsidies the producer receives from the government and uses to lower the prices charged to purchasers. In simple terms, the basic price is the subsidized price without tax.
