Inter-State Movement of Goods...

This Directorate has been entrusted with the responsibility of compilation and publication of Inland Trade Statistics by Rail and River since 1917. From the year 1991-92 compilation of data on inland trade by air has also been added. The primary sources of the statistics are the returns received from the different Railway Zones, CIWTC, Kolkata and Indian Airlines at present. The data published in this volume relate to Qty. figures of 78 selected commodities/commodity groups moving by inland rail and river amongst 38 different trade blocks. Each of the States (provinces) of India is basically treated as an individual trade block whereas with a view to trace the foreign imports to their places of consumption and exports from their places of production some of the important sea port towns are segregated from the maritime states and identified as additional and independent trade blocks resulting in a total of 38 trade blocks.

The Rail-borne trade data is represented in two different forms. The first is a 38 X 38-matrix representation of individual commodity-wise quantity in prescribed unit (in quintal) moved between the 38 trade blocks. The second is the presentation of state-wise inward and outward consignments of 78 selected commodities/commodity groups moved. This publication also contains cargo moving by Air from Airport to Airport and also State to State within the country through Indian Airlines only. The summary of river borne is represented separately in an identical method akin to the rail, as the volume is negligible

Periodicity: The publication is compiled annually on financial year basis.

Availability: Copies of the publication are available at the office of Controller of Publication, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Govt. of India, Civil Lines, Delhi – 110 054 on payment of the requisite amount in the form of bank draft in his favour or may be obtained from the Book Depots/Agents authorized to sale Govt. of India Publications.
