Business records of a unit, any other legal document in support of the information furnished by the unit may be inspected by the Statistics Officer or a person authorised by him.

The ChemIndia Webportal serves as a central hub for registered chemical and petrochemical industries and units across the country to submit their data. Through an intuitive online portal, stakeholders can seamlessly contribute their inputs on an annual as well as monthly basis. This real-time data collection mechanism ensures accuracy and timeliness in the compilation of vital statistics.
