its fabulous mam. so why we celebrate new year on janury
Fiscal Deficit means Total expenditure - Total non debt creating receipts. In other words market borrowings aressubtracted from Budget deficit. In lecture I have said "Fiscal deficit means Budget deficit + market Borrowing and future liability which is a mistake. It should have been "Fiscal deficit means Budget deficit - Market borrowings and liabilities. Apologies for the goof up.
