* National Income does not measure:-

   An increase in leisure or work satisfaction.
   Changes in product quality

*National Income does not accurately reflect changes in environment like oil spills cleanup is measured as positive output but increased in pollution is not measured as negative

*Problem of double counting.

*Problems of depreciation estimation

* Arbitrary Definition
    Inclusion or exclusion of certain items in national income accounting can cause confusion

*Challenges like difficulties in getting information especially those related to underground economy.
