Abstract

Despite being an improvement on the ad hoc and restrictive Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management framework, the N K Singh Committee report suffers from some shortcomings. A short critique of the report’s framing is presented, suggesting that the report is insufficiently attentive to the considerations of macroeconomic coordination. There is a case for increased fiscal spending that runs counterto the recommendations of the committee.
