सांख्यिकी एवं कार्यक्रम क्रियान्वयन मंत्रालय द्वारा देशभर में आठवाँ सांख्यिकी दिवस समारोह पूर्वक 2014 मनाया गया। भारतीय अर्थव्यवस्था में सेवा क्षेत्र सांख्यिकी के योगदान एवं महत्व को ध्यान में रखते हुए आठवें सांख्यिकी दिवस का लक्ष्य “सेवा क्षेत्र सांख्यिकी” चुना गया है।
इस कार्यक्रम का मुख्य समारोह नई दिल्ली के विज्ञान भवन में आयोजित किया गया जिसमें योजना आयोग, राज्य मंत्री (स्वतंत्र प्रभार) सांख्यिकी तथा कार्यक्रम क्रियान्वयन एवं रक्षा राज्य मंत्री राव इंद्रजीत सिंह मुख्य अतिथि थे और राष्ट्रीय सांख्यिकी आयोग के अध्यक्ष डॉ. प्रणव सेन गेस्ट ऑफ ऑनर थे। .
अपने उद्घाटन भाषण में सांख्यिकी मंत्री ने कहा कि विकास और निवेश की नीतियां तैयार करने में सांख्यिकी की गुणवत्ता अत्यन्त महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाती है। नीति निर्धारण और कार्यक्रम क्रियान्वयन की दिशा में पारदर्शिता एवं उत्तरदायित्व में भी महत्वपूर्ण होने के साथ-साथ इससे बेहतर सुशासन और जन-सेवाओं पर निगरानी भी सुनिश्चित होती है।

National Competition Policy is need of the hour” says Ashok Chawla

[New Delhi] National Competition Policy is need of the hour” says Ashok Chawla, Chairman, Competition Commission of India
Ashok Chawla, Chairman, Competition Commission of India has emphasised on the need to adopt National Competition Policy. He was speaking at a seminar on “National Competition Policy; Second Big Wave of Reforms”, organised by Consumer Unity & Trust Society (CUTS) International at Delhi yesterday.
Shri Chawla emphasised that the competition law is an essential tool for enforcement against anti-competitive practices but the policy is much larger. It is important for countries such as India, where States play a major role in the economic sectors and the policy paradigm in the liberalised still tilts towards State control, it is important to adopt National Competition Policy (NCP) for India.
The competition policy is important to tackle entry barriers that are inbuilt in the system and leads to more robust economic welfare and provide governance to the country.
Speaking on the occasion, Shri Arun Maira, Member, Planning Commission of India, emphasised on political-economic challenges in implementing a policy. He said that redesigning of institutions is needed to address these challenges and generating growth which is what the Planning Commission of India is attempting at the moment.
Shri Pradeep S Mehta, Secretary General of CUTS informed that many countries have adopted such policies which has resulted in higher growth and thus public welfare enhanced. Mehta gave an overview of a recent study that CUTS has undertaken which advocates for certain interventions that can help remove competition distortions that exist in the markets. This current CUTS research is a sequel to a series of research studies that had been undertaken for the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in certain key sectors to assess policy impediments to competition in them.
Mr. Andrew Soper, representing British High Commission, New Delhi, added that UK firms are increasingly interested in India from a trade and investment perspective, and hence it was necessary for British High Commission to get a better understanding of the prevailing business environment in some of these key sectors.
