Cost of Customised Weather and Marine Services: A study for Ministry of Earth Sciences, GoI
The Ministry of Earth Science has been providing weather / climate related forecasts on land and oceans through its constituent units namely the National Centre for Ocean Range Weather Forecasting (NCMRWF) and the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS). This study aims to estimate the cost incurred in producing user-wise customized forecasts of NCMRWF and INCOIS by carefully analysing the economic values/costs and financial costs of the output. The study will also estimate the direct and indirect value of weather services.

Enhancing the Scope and Quality of Indian FDI Statistics
This study is targeted at bringing the focus of high-level policy attention on the urgent need to revamp India’s FDI statistical system for an accurate view of Foreign Direct Investment inflows a / outflows and their impact.

Assessment Study on Green Jobs Potential in India
The overall objective of this study is to develop a Green Sector Input-Output (IO) table for India for the year 2009-10 and derive the IO coefficient and Leontief matrix. The exercise will make use of output and employment multipliers of various “green” sectors in India (Wind Energy, Watershed Development, Forestry & Environment and Metro Rail Services) to analyse the growth and employment potential of such sectors. Further, simulations analysis will evaluate the investments required in each sector to facilitate certain levels of growth and employment in these sectors.
