In order to capture a clear picture of the economy, the government has initiated the process to change the base year to 2011-12 for computing the country's gross domestic product (GDP), said the media report.

At present, the base year for calculating the GDP is 2004-05, which had been changed from 1993-94 in 2006, it added.
