It is a measure in monetary terms of the volume of all goods and services produced in a district during a given period of time, accounted without duplication.
The detailed district wise data are not available for calculation of GDDP. So for allocation of GSDP to different districts, sector wise district indicators are prepared. In the Primary sectors district wise outputs are the indicators for allocation. District wise Sales taxes and service Taxes are used for Trade, Hotel & Restaurant sector. No. of vehicles are used for Transport. No. of dwelling is used for Real Estate and District wise workforces are used for allocation of remaining sectors.
No attempt has been made to estimate the income flows between the districts. Thus, the district-level estimates of domestic product are arrived at, as in case of state domestic product, by “income originating” approach. For the commodity producing sectors, the production approach is applied to find the estimates of value added at district level. For the sectors for which district-level prices are not available, the state average prices are used along with the district-wise production data to obtain the value of output at district-level. For other sectors, where the income approach is followed to prepare the estimates at state level, the basic data are scanty. Thus, the state level estimates of value added in respect of these sectors are allocated to districts on the basis of relevant indicators at district level.
