Fiscal Policy Roadmap Seminar

The implementation of the GST single tax regime across the country was seen as one of the most consequential changes in this country. Although the move was welcomed at first, its implementation has seen several challenges. In addition to this state government finances especially in the power sector have observed increase in government debt. The slew of state elections in late 2018 and national election 2019 has also seen considerable subsidies being promised, especially for the agricultural sector and the poor. All these developments are likely to have major economic implications for any government.

The one-day Conference on Fiscal Policy Roadmap for the new Government, aims to flag major issues in the Fiscal Policy, covering Center, states and local bodies. The conference will cover several issues such as tax management, expenditure management and debt sustainability through a series of panel discussions with representation from practitioners, academia and industry experts.

The conference will be inaugurated by Shri N K Singh, Chairman of the Fifteenth Finance Commission and the Valedictory Address will be given by Shri Bibek Debroy, Chairman, Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council.
