Lekha Chakraborty, professor, National Institute of Public Finance and Policy, said:’’ I think we don’t have to fear fiscal deficit right now. High fiscal deficit can be substantiated if we can increase capex & revenue spending on education and health. There is mounting pressure on the RBI to increase interest rates. My hunch is that the fiscal deficit will be contained at 6.8% of GDP via tax buoyancy and not expenditure compression."

The analysis by the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP) says that while Odisha has shown “commendable consistency” in child budgeting during the COVID-19 pandemic and an “upward trend” in allocations for children till 2020-21, funds have been underutilised by certain critical departments. The analysis noted that higher budgetary allocation for children did not translate into increased actual spending. NIPFP is an autonomous research institute under the ministry of finance. The analysis was done by researchers Amandeep Kaur and Lekha Chakraborty who measured Odisha’s budget allocations for children with the Public Expenditure Financial Accountability (PEFA) framework.
