if nominal GDP level is below the targeted mark then it should come out above the target The RFD is therefore defined as the difference between the actual fiscal deficit and the budgeted fiscal deficit after adjusting for actual GDP levels For example in 2011 actual nominal GDP was 27 per cent below target and the fiscal deficit target was 46 per cent of the GDP Since the fiscal deficit target was 46 per cent of the GDP a shortfall of 27 per cent in the GDP meant that the adjusted fiscal deficit should be (46x(1 + 0027)) or 473 per cent Note that the plus sign changes to a minus sign if the actual GDP level is above the budgeted level Now the actual fiscal deficit in 2011 came in at 59 per cent of the GDP (the budgeted was 46 per cent) and should have been 47 per cent (after adjusting for the GDP level) Hence the RFD was + 12 per cent or the worst since 2008 when because of the fiscal crisis the RFD came in at 37 per cent — this was the highest since 1997 Note that the budgeted versus actual data are not available on any website including the RBI’s The table documents the performance for 20 years including averages for different political regimes The RFDs for the last two NDA years are near identical at minus 015 per cent of the GDP that is in both years the fiscal deficit came out 015 per cent below what it should have been The NDA has not been given any credit for its performance in 2014 partly because it increased the targeted deficit from 39 to 41 per cent of the GDP But the decline in deficits by a cumulative 03 per cent of the GDP in the two years 2014 and 2015 implies that the Narendra Modi-Arun Jaitley regime has nearly made up for that fiscal indiscipline To be sure in each of the numbers contained in the table there are errors As far as fiscal deficit numbers are concerned there is the traditional kicking of the can down the road — that is part of the fertiliser subsidies appear in the next year as “expenditures” There are some who maintain that the GDP growth is overestimated at present Note that this presumed error does not creep into our calculations since we are concerned only with the nominal numbers What about the oil price decline Whenever the discussion is about the good fiscal performance in 2015 (and according to the above in 2014 as well) the caveat of declining oil prices and hence benefit towards a better fiscal deficit (via oil taxes) is always mentioned But while oil price changes are exogenous the decision to tax or subsidise oil is an explicit policy decision and both in 2014 and 2015 the BJP decided to pocket most of the decline in the international price of oil Although the international oil price became half in 2015 the consumers only received 10 per cent of the decline One final point about Budget 2016-17 Was there a turn towards agriculture A large element of the 80 per cent increase in the allocation for agriculture is fictitious — it is just an accounting change of Rs 15000 crore of interest subsidy for short-term credit which was contained in the ministry of finance accounts earlier and is now allocated to the ministry of agriculture However after eliminating this transfer agriculture irrigation and rural development have been allocated an increase of 16 per cent If inflation stays around 4 per cent this will be one of the three highest increases in the last 20 years In sum Budget 2016-17 should be regarded as one of the best perhaps the best since 1996 The NDA’s fiscal performance in 2014 and 2015 suggests that acche macro din should continue well into the future The writer is contributing editor ‘The Indian Express’ and senior India analyst The Observatory Group a New York-based macro policy advisory group For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News Finally,who had lost the contest.
