participation in Budget-making Top News The government’s plan to advance the Budget date to January instead of February-end helps it on a couple of counts The first: it obviates the administrative need of presenting a Vote On Account to allow for government spending in the first few months of the financial year India follows the April 1-March 31 financial year While the Budget is presented at the end of February it is passed by both the Houses of Parliament only by mid-May This makes it necessary for the finance ministry to get approved a Vote On Account by Parliament A VoA allows the government to draw funds from the Consolidated Fund of India for routine government expenditure till the Union Budget is approved by both the houses The second: it facilitates more planned spending by various ministries and departments in the government during the first quarter Government expenditure in the first quarter is generally lackadaisical In fact despite stringent guidelines on spending and reminders by the finance ministry many ministries and departments bunch their expenditure in the second half and more so in the last quarter of the financial year lending themselves to criticism of inefficient spending The advancing of the Budget date should however not be seen in isolation with the government also considering a change in the financial year A committee under former Chief Economic Advisor Shankar Acharya was set up on July 6 to examine the desirability and feasibility of having a new financial year It will examine the merits and demerits of various dates for the commencement of the financial year including the existing April 1-March 31 Two new financial year dates the committee may study are: one the calendar year January 1-December 31 that aligns India with most countries and global financial institutions such as IMF and the World Bank and two October-September because the government has a good idea of how the country’s principal monsoon season (South-West monsoon in June-September) has fared and its likely impact on agriculture The committee is required to submit its report before December 31 this year Meanwhile a Niti Aayog paper has noted that there is a need to change the financial year for better Budget planning and has noted that January-December is most widely followed across countries and by UN bodies and also by 70 per cent of the top 50 Fortune 500 companies So for the move to be much more than a mere statement of ‘change’ it must not only address the issue of immediate concern that is better expenditure planning but also take into account the possibility of a change in the financial year currently being studied by the Shankar Acharya committee A more meaningful exercise could be for the government to encourage larger public participation in Budget-making It can do so by placing the proposed expenditure plan for the forthcoming year in the public domain This will lend itself to wider discussion and debate ahead of the actual presentation of the Budget and perhaps influence a more efficient spending programme For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top
