GDP complexity and knowledge of the general public...

Even though economic concepts like GDP are difficult for the general public to understand, attempts are frequently made to turn them into political issues. When it comes to GDP growth rates, the ruling party consistently strives to make its tenure appear superior. The opposition consistently looks for methods to refute the government's assertions.

Estimating GDP is an extremely intricate and sophisticated process. In a nutshell, GDP is the total market or monetary worth of finished products and services produced inside the boundaries of a nation over a given length of time. Estimates are made on a quarterly basis to determine the annual growth rate. It is regarded as a criterion in economics to assess a nation's economic health.

The processes involved in estimating GDP are so intricate that even those with a rudimentary understanding of economics find it difficult to comprehend. Given the socio-educational climate that has emerged in India, a sizable portion of the general public is ignorant of GDP as its whole. That is the reality. Even still, between 80 and 90 percent of people do not know the distinction between economic development and growth. 

Under these conditions, a lot of parties might exploit something like GDP to stir things up politically, but the average citizen doesn't really care whose government has had the highest GDP growth rate. The general populace of the nation does not view this factor as a voting criterion.

This is ironic given the fact that there has never been an effort made by the political system to foster economic and constitutional understanding among the nation's common citizens. The drawback of this is that every administration attempts to make the wellbeing of the populace an election issue by associating the nation's growing economy with it.
