Meta Description tag is to provide a brief and concise summary of your website’s content. Google has said it no longer considers meta description tags in determining search engine rankings.

The meta description tag takes the following form:
<meta name="description" content="Brief description of the contents of your page.">

Though meta description tags are not a major factor search engines consider when ranking sites, they should not be left off the page. Both the meta keywords tag and the meta description tag contribute to your search engine ranking, and the meta description tag influences the liklihood that a person will actually click on the search engine results page and visit your site.
The meta description tag is intented to be a brief and concise summary of your page's content. Think of the Yahoo! directory. You see your site title followed by a brief description of your site or business. The meta description tag is designed to provide a brief description of your site which can be used by search engines or directories. The meta description tag takes the following form:
<meta name="description" content="Brief description of the contents of your page.">

In short, The Meta Description is the summary of the entire website like, what about this website, which type of service providing the website or what they sell and the name of the website owner and their contact details.

Mr. Gary

Meta Description are typically to specify page description, keywords, author of the document, last modified, and other metadata.
Is it known as Meta Description or Meta Tags? I think page description, keywords, author, last modified,.... are all meta tags value and meta description is one of them.

In SEO, meta description plays a vital role in order to display webpage in google search.
Agree to this point, as if its proper, google may show the short snippet in their search results.
