What is a Budget?:

What is a Budget? It is an estimate of future revenues and expenditure over a specific period. Budgets are usually prepared on annual basis for governments – both Centre and State and annual and monthly basis for business enterprises. In other words, it is an Annual Statement of Income and Expenditure of the Government to be placed before the Parliament as Constitutional responsibility. 05/03/2015 yerramr@gmail.com 25

Budget Nomenclature:

Budget Nomenclature Annual Financial Statement: Government’s receipts and expenditure presented to the Parliament – Consolidated Fund; Contingency Fund; and Public Account Consolidated Fund: Summation of all revenues, money borrowed and receipts from loans it has given. All State expenditure is given from this fund Contingency Fund: Any urgent and unforeseen expenditure is met from this Fund and is at the disposal of the President of India. Public Account: It is a collection of deposits like the Public Provident Fund. Consolidated Fund is split into revenue and capital budgets. Revenue Budget consists of all revenue account; Capital budget or capital account includes non-revenue receipts and expenditure. Revenue Account: All receipts like taxes and expenditure like salaries, subsidies, interest payments that does not involve creation of any assets Capital account: Receipts from liquidating (selling) assets or shares of a public sector company and spending to create assets and lending to receive interest. 05/03/2015 yerramr@gmail.com 26


Expenditure A Central Plan is the Government’s expenditure that includes a five-year road map. This is met both from budget and non-budgetary sources (State owned enterprises) Government’s support to the Central Plan is known as Budget support. Plan expenditure: It is the amount the centre sets aside to States and UTs split into revenue and capital components in addition to the budget support. Non-Plan expenditure: All those bills the government has to pay under the ‘revenue expenditure’: interest payments, subsidies, salaries, defense and pension. Most of the capital expenditure goes for Defense. 05/03/2015 yerramr@gmail.com 27


Deficits Fiscal Deficit: Living beyond the means – Non-borrowed receipts-(revenue receipts+ loan repayments+ miscellaneous capital receipts, primarily disinvestment proceeds) falling short of expenditure. The excess of total expenditure over total non-borrowed receipts is called fiscal deficit. Revenue Deficit: Ideally all revenue expenditure must be met from revenue receipts. Where it falls short, it has to raise a debt from the public. Primary Deficit: Fiscal Deficit-Interest payments on earlier borrowings. If this is growing it means that our fiscal strength is bad. Current Account Deficit: Deficit arising from balance of payments current assets FRBM Act 2003 specifies that revenue expenditure shall be met fully out of revenue receipts only. Any borrowing should be done only to meet capital expenditure. The Act also mandates 3% fiscal deficit after 2008-09 in order to maintain fiscal stability. The global financial crisis and our economy’s melt down has forced to abandon this fiscal discipline in 2008-09. Fiscal Deficit 5.5% - a fall from the estimated 6.7% of GDP. 05/03/2015 yerramr@gmail.com 28
