KAKINADA DISTRICT ECONOMY
The importance and significance of gross root level planning and decentralized planning at Mandal level is being increased day by day, and to prepare the decentralized planning, it is very essential to have proper data on various development indicators. Among them, estimates of Mandal Domestic Product or Mandal income are one of the core indicators. The Mandal Per Capita Income estimate helps the planners to compare among inter Mandal variations, which helps to examine the Mandal disparities and to prepare proper plans for the development of the Micro Level (i.e. Mandal Level). With gradual improvement in the availability of the basic data over the years, a comprehensive review of methodology for Mandal income has constantly been under taken with a view to update the data base.

Mandal Income Estimates are prepared at current prices with new base year 2011-12. The Mandal Domestic Product Estimates at Current Prices are obtained by the goods and services produced during the year 2015-16.
Apart from the Agriculture Sector and Manufacturing Sector, the availability of Mandal level data in respect of other sectors is inadequate. Maiden attempt is made on pilot basis to calculate the Mandal level Domestic Product (MDP). These estimates for the year are purely provisional and will be revised as and when more reliable and firm data is available.
