to Rs 575000 crore Related News The NDA government’s maiden Budget focused firmly on fiscal consolidation and retained the ambitious target of 41 per cent of the GDP for the fiscal deficit in FY15 while betting on an economic recovery to shore up tax revenues Presenting the Union Budget 2014-15 in the Lok Sabha finance minister Arun Jaitley made it clear the Budget would lay broad policy indicators to revive economic growth to 7-8 per cent over the next three years along with lower inflation lesser fiscal deficit and a manageable current account deficit “Fiscal prudence to me is of paramount importance because of considerations of inter-generational equity… there is urgent need to generate more resources” he said Accordingly he rolled out fiscal consolidation plans under which fiscal deficit would be brought down to 36 per cent in FY16 and 3 per cent by FY17 The revenue deficit will be lowered to 29 per cent by FY15 However Jaitley ruled out further expenditure cuts to control deficit and instead increased the government’s total spending in FY15 to Rs 1794892 crore as against the Interim Budget target of Rs 1763214 crore marking a 128 per cent hike against the Revised Estimate (RE) for FY14 The Budget also increased capital expenditure by 269 per cent over RE for FY14 and plan expenditure by 209 per cent over the RE of FY14 to Rs 575000 crore Partially

effect of reducing revenues by 01 per cent to 02 per cent of GDP” said Fitch in a statement The Budget also depends heavily on raising revenues by bringing up the tax to GDP ratio to 106 per cent in FY13 from 101 per cent in FY14 While gross tax receipts are pegged at Rs 1364526 crore tax revenue is estimated to grow by 19 per cent Non-tax revenues at Rs 212505 crore of which disinvestment
