January, 12th 2010

Caught in a dilemma of adhering to fiscal prudence and ensuring funds for promised pro-aam aadmi schemes, the UPA government is expected to go for a moderate hike in total gross budgetary support (GBS) by at least 15% for fiscal 2010-11, over current budgetary estimates.

Sources said finance ministry has promised the Planning Commission of at least 15% increases in planned expenditure putting the figure at Rs 3.73 lakh crore for next fiscal which will be lower compared to the current year.
