Gross Domestic Product

“Gross domestic product (GDP) is the market value of all final goods and services produced within the territory of a country during a given period of time.”

Main emphasis:

1. Market value:

To arrive at the GDP all the goods and services are measured at their market prices. This it enables to bring a standardized measure of valuing the goods and services.

2. Final Goods:

GDP considers final goods and services only. Final goods & services mean those which are readily available for the end user to consume. As we are already including the value of final goods which comes through different forms of intermediary, it is not required to include the intermediary goods again.

For example: If a fisherman sells fishes to dealer at Rs.100 and the same is sold by the dealer to final consumer at Rs. 200. Now as a final product available to consumer, we include the market value of fish at Rs 200. This includes the value of intermediary RS 100 when it is being passed from the fisherman.

3. Goods & Services:

GDP includes the tangible and intangible production made within a nation’s territory. Tangible things are those which can be seen and touched Eg: Mobiles, vehicles, fruits and other goods. In tangible things are those which cannot be seen and touched. Eg : Software services, Advisory & audit service.

4. Produced in the country:

GDP considers only those goods services which are produced within the territory of the country by either the foreigners or Indians. It means goods which are produced outside the territory by Indian producers are not considered to compute GDP.

How it is measured:

Generally GDP is measured for a period of an year or a quarter. GDP is measured by using following formula:

GDP = C + I + G + NX   


C = Indicates consumption which is very broader in this context. It includes all the spending made on goods and services by the consumers in a nation.

I = Indicates Investment. This means the total amount spent on goods and services which will be used for further production of goods and services. Like investment made on capital equipment, machineries, factory buildings, technology etc.,

G = Indicates total government’s spending on goods and services at different levels of governing the public.

NX = Indicates net amount of exports. i.e., NX=Total exports – total imports.
