Solution

In order to avoid double counting value added approach is used. According to this approach, the value added at each stage of the production process is included. The difference between the value of final outputs and inputs, at each stage of production is called the value added. Thus, GNP is obtained as the sum total of the values added by all the different, stages of the production process, till the final output is reached in the hands of consumers, to meet the final demand. This can be illustrated with the help of the following table.
Here, we have assumed a much simplified model of an economy, producing only a single final product, bread. It is assumed, that there are four productive stages in production of bread.
         In the given example farmer produces and sells wheat for 700/- to the miller. Miller sells flour for 1000/- to the baker. Baker sells bread for  1300/- to the retailer/merchant. Retailer sells bread for  1400/- to the consumers. So the value added by farmer ( 700), miller ( 300), baker ( 300) and retailer ( 100) that is, total of  1400 should be included in the national income.
To avoid double counting, either the value of final output or the sum of value added should be taken in the estimate of GNP.
  Is there an error in this question or solution?

PASSAGE

Corona has slowed down the economy Lockdown imposed to contain the spread of Corona virus had resulted in closure of manufacturing and business activities. During this financial year, the economy is expected to move towards a contractionary phase rather than expansionary phase. This has been stated in the budget. This is the first paperless budget in the history of India. At the same time, it is the third post-independence budget to be presented at a time when the economy is shrinking. The budget shows a fiscal deficit of more than 5%.

The Union Finance Minister has presented a budget that seeks to accelerate the economy by balancing the impact of Corona on the economy on one hand and growing expectations of all sectors on the other. A significant increase in the allocation for Healthcare by 137% is a feature of this budget. In this budget, the expected revenue for the year 212-2022 is Rs. 34,35, 000crore and the expected expenditure is Rs. 35,83, 000 crore.

Attempts have been made to boost infrastructure, education, agricultural production, employment generation and industry, but the Income tax status quo has remained the same. The budget provides Rs.16.5 lakh crore for agricultural credit, Rs. 223,000 crore for health facilities, Rs. 3 lakh crore for Power Distribution Scheme, Rs. 15,700 crore for Small and Medium Enterprises and Rs. 20,000 crore for Government Bank Capital.
