State Fiscal Reforms in India: Progress and Prospects

N / A (Author)

Sustaining and accelerating this progress, as per the country’s development targets, will require an improvement in government effectiveness, not only at the central but also at the state level, given the extensive responsibilities of India’s state governments for infrastructure and human development. But fiscal deterioration, especially acute in the late nineties, has weakened the development effectiveness of state governments in India by squeezing productive spending, and reducing its quality, especially in the poorer states. In response, first a few and by now the majority of state governments have embarked of fiscal reforms, aimed not only at reducing deficits but also at more and better spending in priority areas, made possible by expenditure restructuring and enhanced revenue mobilization. Fiscal reforms implemented thus far by states, while showing initial returns, are still a work-in-progress, and significant challenges remain.
