April 2, 2011 510 Views 0 comment Print

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) today released “State Finances: A Study of Budgets of 2010-11”, a publication that provides data, analysis and assessment of finances of State governments. The State governments presented their budgets for 2010-11 against the backdrop of an economic recovery and improving growth prospects for the Indian economy. Reflecting these positive developments, States had budgetted higher growth in own tax revenues in 2010-11 than in 2009-10 (RE). In addition, States also expected a larger devolution from the Centre in the form of share in Central taxes during 2010-11. The States had undertaken a massive expansion in aggregate expenditures in the previous two years in the wake of the overall macroeconomic slowdown and implementation of the Sixth Central/State(s) Pay Commission recommendations. They, therefore, budgetted a modest rise in their aggregate expenditures during 2010-11. All these factors indicated a move towards the resumption of the fiscal consolidation process at the level of States in 2010-11 after a slippage in the previous two years.
