Macroeconomic Policy Simulations for the 15th FC Period

  • Sep, 2019
  • Authors N R Bhanumurthy, Sukanya Bose and Sakshi Satija
  • Details Submitted to 15th Finance Commission of India
  • Abstract
    In this paper, an attempt has been made to look at four empirical issues that may be of interest to the 15th Finance Commission: what has been the impact of higher devolution of Central taxes to the States on overall economic growth, fiscal balance and other indicators? What could be the impact of changes in external conditions on the macroeconomic prospects? What mix of expenditure policies would allow the Indian economy to achieve higher growth and fiscal consolidation? And finally, can India achieve the medium term target of US$ 5 Trillion by 2024-25? To address these issues, this paper uses a modified NIPFP-macroeconomic policy simulation model for the Indian economy.
     
    With regard to lower devolution share to the States, vis-à-vis the baseline scenario, causes economic growth to be marginally higher by 0.4% for the 14th Finance Commission period on an average and 0.3% over the 15th Finance Commission projection period. It is also found that an expenditure switching strategy in favour of capital expenditure (by more than 1% of GDP) with the centre assuming the greater share of the increase, and reduction in revenue deficit to GDP makes it possible to combine high growth (8%) with fiscal consolidation that brings down the liability to GDP ratio 60 per cent. With greater public investments and its complementarity with private investment, the target of $5 trillion economy by 2024-5 is achievable. The analysis also suggests that distribution of debt targets between Centre and States in the new FRBM roadmap may need to be revised.

Macroeconomic Policy Simulations for the 14th Finance Commission

  • Dec, 2014
  • Authors N R Bhanumurthy, Sukanya Bose, Parma Devi Adhikari, and Abhishek Kumar
  • Details Report submitted to the 14th Finance Commission of India.
  • Abstract

    This study attempts to construct a consistent macroeconomic framework for India to review the macro-fiscal linkages over the 14th Finance Commission period of 2015-19.  The existing NIPFP model has been reworked to add a full-fledged real sector block comprising of agriculture, industry, services and infrastructure, with the overall economy comprising of real sector block, external block, monetary block, fiscal block and macroeconomic block. The estimated model was used for policy simulations for the 14th Finance Commission period. The various scenarios include (a) shock due to 7th Pay Commission award, (b) targeting deficit and debt (c) targeting higher growth and (d) the external shocks.  The results suggest that while Pay Commission award would result in slightly higher growth compared to the base case, this also results in higher inflation, fiscal-revenue deficits, current account deficit as well as higher government liability.  Further simulation results suggest that expenditure switching policy, which is the core of expansionary fiscal consolidation mechanism, by increasing higher government capital expenditure and reducing the government transfers could result in higher growth with a manageable fiscal deficit of 6 per cent that also brings down the government liability to its present level of 65 per cent.

  • Abstract
    In this study, the features of fiscal decentralization in five such nations – Brazil, China, Indonesia, Russia, and South Africa – are surveyed, with a view to summarize the essentials of the groups of characteristics that are common to all structures of fiscal federalism. These include assignment of functional responsibilities, fiscal imbalances, intergovernmental transfers to resolve the imbalances, and sub-national borrowing. In addition, these surveys also consider the role of sub-national governments in macroeconomic stabilization in the context of the recent past – during and after the global financial crisis.
