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.

Kerala Perspective Plan 2030
The Kerala Perspective Plan 2030 (KPP) is a State Board of Planning initiative that will serve as the basis for implementation of a series of initiatives aimed at fostering sustained growth of the economy. These initiatives will facilitate the Kerala economy to leapfrog and catch up with high income countries. It is organised into three volumes. While Volume I focuses on the broad macro-economic strategy, Volume II covers major economic sectors (agriculture and allied sectors, ICT, industry and tourism), utilities (energy and water) and infrastructure (urbanisation, transport and road, and rural development) of the economy. Finally, Volume III spread over 8 chapters focuses on cross cutting themes. These initiatives will facilitate the Kerala economy to leapfrog into catching up with high income countries.

Food Grain Stocking Policy for India
Pending legislation, which will guarantee access by the poor to a specified quantity of food grains, the National Food Security Bill stands to have a major impact on the food grain stocking policy in India. The Bill mentions cash transfers and issuing food coupons to eligible families. However, no concrete steps have been spelled out on this front. It is therefore supposed that the present system of procurement and storage of food grains by the Central and State government agencies shall continue. The successful implementation of the Act will clearly require that much larger stocks be held. Whether these stocks are held by the government or the private sector depends on new instruments being created, e.g., negotiable warehouse receipts-, on new institutions such as public-private partnerships in warehousing and on changes to the legal structure, especially the Essential Commodities Act and the Agricultural Produce Marketing (Regulation) Act

Developing an Input-Output Table for Gujarat with new Green Industries
The objective of this study is to analyse job creation and growth potential of the state of Gujarat using both secondary and primary data sources through input-output modeling. The degree of impact of exogenous factors on output of a particular sector on all sectors through different multiplier effects is examined. Three of the most frequently used types of multiplier estimate the impacts of the exogenous changes on (i) outputs of the sectors in the economy (output multiplier), (ii) income earned by households because of the new outputs (income multiplier), and (iii) employment that is expected to be generated because of the new output (employment multiplier).

Study of the Impact of Parallel Imports of Books, Films/ Music, and Software on the Indian Economy with Special Reference to Students
The Indian Copyright Act (1957) prohibits parallel imports of books, films/music and software. The copyright (Amendment) Bill 2010 seeks to insert the following proviso to section 2 of the IPA (1957): “provided that a copy of a work published in any country outside India with the permission of the author of the work and imported from that country into India shall not be deemed to be an infringing copy”. The study undertook cost-benefit analysis for producers and consumers of these products as a consequence of parallel imports being allowed in India.

Macroeconomic Modelling of Emerging Scenarios for India's Twelfth Five Year Plan
The objective of this project is to analyze three alternative growth scenarios for the Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012–13 to 2016–17). These three scenarios present the expected GDP growth rates of the Indian economy under various policy actions and institutional and regulatory frameworks. The updated macro econometric model developed at NCAER was used to provide emerging scenarios. The results indicate that GDP growth rate is expected to be around 8 per cent for the Twelfth Five Year Plan period under the "flotilla" scenario, 5–6 per cent under the "muddling along" scenario and below 5 per cent under the "falling apart" scenario. The study also found that poverty reduction is expected to be high under the first scenario and would be low under the other two scenarios.

Evaluation Study on Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act
The objectives of the project were threefold: (1) to assess the implementation process, flow of funds, quality of assets, coverage of scheme, impact on livelihood, convergence issues, migration issues, extension of scheme to urban areas, record maintenance, capacity of implementing authorities, norms followed and involvement of PRIs; (2) to examine post construction maintenance aspects, different wages in different states and gender issues in payments; and (3) to review implementation of rules and regulations, and monitoring aspects.

Regional Tourism Satellite Accounts for all States of India
The aim of the study is to prepare a set of 10 comprehensive tourism-specific tables/accounts, based on international guidelines. These tables will help in estimating the contribution of tourism to the 35 states and UTs of the Indian economy in terms of GDP and the employment it generates. The indirect contribution, using the input-output model,will also be taken into account.

Macroeconomic Modelling for the Eleventh Five Year Plan and Beyond
The objective of this project is to develop capacity for analysing issues on economic growth and welfare under a variety of policy choices in government spending in the provision of public goods and other measures that influence the course of the economy. The macro econometric model developed under the project has been used to provide simulation scenarios relating to impact of international oil prices, worsening global economic growth, a managed current account and fiscal balance and the impact of Middle East crisis on economic growth prospects of the Indian economy.

Study on Unaccounted Income and Wealth Inside and Outside India
The objective of the programme is to analyse the extent of unaccounted income and wealth inside and outside the country, the quantum of non-payment of taxes due to evasion of registered corporate bodies and the nature of activities that engender money laundering and to make substantive policy recommendations that would enable detection and prevention of unaccounted money as well as mainstream such activities into the economy.
