Let's Talk About Budget

  • 2007
  • Subrat Das

This booklet aims to guide the interested but uninitiated readers in comprehending some of the important elements of government budgeting in India. It answers questions like ‘How is the Union Budget prepared?’, ‘Does Union Budget affect State Budgets?’ and ‘What do Union Budget papers look like?’. The final section of this booklet, An Epilogue, locates the Budget in a larger picture of government intervention for socio-economic development, which helps us both in appreciating the importance of analysing government Budgets as well as recognising the limitations of the same.
