Given the following data, find the missing values of 'Private Final Consumption Expenditure' and 'Operating Surplus'.

 S.No. Particulars Amount(In ₹ crores) (i) National Income 50,000 (ii) Net Indirect Taxes 1,000 (iii) Private Final Consumption Expenditure ? (iv) Gross Domestic Capital Formation 17,000 (v) Profits 1,000 (vi) Government Final Consumption Expenditure 12,500 (vii) Wages & Salaries 20,000 (viii) Consumption of Fixed Capital 700 (ix) Mixed Income of Self Employed 13,000 (x) Operating Surplus ? (xi) Net Factor Income from Abroad 500 (xii) Net Exports 2,000

#### Solution

National Income (NNPFC) = 50,000
We know,
NNPFC = GDPMP - Consumption of Fixed Capital - NIT + NFIA
50,000 = GDPMP - 700 - 1,000 + 500
GDPMP = 51,200
Now, we know as per the expenditure method:
GDPMP = Private Final Consumption Expenditure + Government Final Consumption Expenditure + Gross Domestic Consumption Expenditure + Net Exports
51,200 = P + 12,500 + 17,000 + 2,000
Private Final Consumption Expenditure = ₹ 19,700

Now, NNPFC = NDPFC + NFIA
50,000 = NDPFC + 500
NDPFC = 45,500
Also,
NDPFC = Wages and Salaries + Operating Surplus + Mixed Income
45,500 = 20,000 + OS + 13,000
OS = 12,500
So, operating surplus is equal to ₹ 12,500.
