Budget must provide an anti-inflationary stance, give RBI room to lower rates

Budget 2013-14 must have an anti inflationary stance as it would give the RBI headroom to lower interest rates. In an interview with The Indian Express, chief economist of Aditya Birla Group, Ajit Ranade says he believes that gold imports that are blamed for the rising current account deficit are also a hedge against inflation. Excerpts:
What are the pressure points that Budget 2013-14 should focus on?

The priorities for the next Budget is to provide growth impulse, especially in the manufacturing sector, keep an anti-inflationary stance, reduce the fiscal deficit and revive investment spending. The pressure on the twin deficits, as well as on inflation will act as overarching constraints.

Is the fiscal deficit target of 5.3 per cent attainable? Can the government afford any fiscal sops in Budget 2013-14 — the last year before elections?
