Basanta K Pradhan, M R Saluja, Yashobanta Parida


This paper aims to construct a Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) for India and explain the
methodology in the process. This SAM consists of 41 sectors of the economy, two factors of
production, nine occupational categories and ten expenditure categories of households. The
SAM has been constructed for the Indian economy for 2005-06. The distribution of income is
based on data for 2004-05.The electricity sector has been decomposed into three sectors
column-wise, namely hydro, nuclear and thermal. Besides the subdivision of electricity sector,
the other energy sector has also been divided into coal and lignite, crude oil and natural gas,
and petroleum products, which will be useful for energy modeling. The expenditure wise
division of households will help in modeling inclusive growth issues.
