Renowned statistician Dr. Radha Binod Barman took over as the part-time Chairperson in the National Statistical Commission (NSC).
Apart from, Professor Rahul Mukherjee, Professor S. Mahendra Dev, Dr. Rajiv Mehta and Dr. Manoj Panda also took over as other part-time members of the commission.
National Statistical Commission is an advisory body on all statistical matters, set up to enhance public trust in official statistics. It was established in 2006 based on the recommendation of C. Rangarajan Commission to reduce problems faced by statistical agencies in the country in relation to the collection of data.
So let’s do:
1. Who is appointed as Chairperson of NSO ?
2. Expand the term NSC and NSO ?
