Model Answer

The salient features of the The Fiscal Deficit and Budget Management Act, 2003 were:
· Every year, the government will bring down revenue deficit by 0.5% and eliminate it by 2008-09.
· Every year, the government will bring down fiscal deficit by 0.3% and bring it down by 3% by 2008- 09.
· Total liabilities of the Union Government should not rise by more than 9% per annum.
· Union Government would not give guarantee to loans raised by PSUs and State Governments for more than 0.5% of the GDP in aggregate.
· Union Government would place three more documents along with the budget documents i.e. Macroeconomic Framework Statement, Medium Term Fiscal Policy Statement and Fiscal Policy Strategy Statement.
· At the end of the 2nd quarter, the Finance Minister would make a statement on the trend of fiscal indicators and corrective measures taken thereof.

However, the government has not been able to achieve the targets particularly post 2008 financial crises.
