To make sense of the diverse and contradictory answers that the average person will receive from supposedly neutral expertsone has to know the various benchmarks used What were the expectations against which the budget was assessed These are related primarily to stabilising the macro-economic situation and secondarily to boosting investment Let me startthereforeby defining my benchmark The rate of growth of the Indian economy has been on a downtrend over the last three years to reach a projected 5 per cent in the current year In this periodthe current account deficit reached 28 per cent and then jumped to an unprecedented 42 per cent of GDPand investment growth halved and then halved again At the same timeinflation as measured by different indicators remained stubbornly high Consequentlythe rating agencies threatened to reduce Indias global rating to junk status The political establishmentincluding the governmenttook serious note of this potential crisis in the last quarter of 2012 and initiated policy action to free the administered prices of petroleum products and increase FDI limits in aviation and retail This was a good start and helped to reverse the extreme pessimism that had gripped domestic and international investors It was phase one of an operation to retrieve the situation and reverse the trends in investment and growth I saw the budget as phase two of the processwhose focus was on reversing fiscal trends as a critical input in overall macro-economic stabilisation The test would be to see if the finance minister was able to deliver on his long-term fiscal deficit strategy and the targets of 53 per cent and 48 per cent for the years 2012-13 and 2013-14respectivelyas well as reverse the trend of rising subsidies and current expenditures and transfers Tested against this benchmarkthe budget has done well (52 per cent and 48 per cent)with a few caveats Much of the increase in the fiscal deficit in 2009-10 (the high point) was due to a jump in subsidies Returning subsidies to 2 per cent of GDPwhere they had settled in 2007-08was therefore an essential element of fiscal stabilisation A projected 10 per cent decline in the subsidy bill is reassuringeven if this decline is exaggerated Howevertotal expenditures are projected to increase by about 16 per cent next yearabove the projected GDP growth of 135 per centwhichin my viewis optimistic Thuscurrent expenditures net of subsidies will increase as a proportion of GDP This uptrend is a little worryingas the revenue deficit (RD) will only decline by about 05 per cent of GDPeven under the optimistic growth projection As the RD is approximately equal to the governments investment-saving gapthe impact on the current account deficit (05 per cent) is not sufficient to bring it below 36 per cent or so On the other handcapital expenditures have increased by 27 per cent Thusthis reduction has been achieved while raising government investmentwhich should have a positive effect on overall investment There are also some measures in the budget to increase private investment and savings The introduction of an investment allowance for large investors hashoweverbeen accompanied by a rise in surcharges on corporate profits This fiscal twist (positive and negative) couldin principlebring forward and accelerate private investment expenditures But this will only happen if investors believe the promise that the rise in the surcharge is temporary Credibility is the key to its success There was also some expectation that explicit administrative and procedural measures would be taken to reverse what has been perceived as a creeping return to permit-inspector raj in the revenue departmentthat isin the Central Board of Direct Taxes and Central Board of Excise and Customs The budget did notunfortunatelygive a convincing demonstration of this reversal There is an underlying concern that many in the UPA and in other parties do not realise the seriousness of the situationwhere the rate of growth of GDPmp (GDP at market prices) is likely to be an abysmal 35 per cent in 2012-13and are again becoming complacent that the measures already taken will propel us back to 65 per cent and then to 8 per cent growth In my viewthis will not happen without further policyregulatory and institutional reforms I look forward to phase three of the reform processwhich can make this return to sustained high growth more likely The writer is non-resident senior fellowBrookingsand former chief economic advisorGovernment of India [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News
