kya sir pad k toh suna rahe ho bas
purely NCERT , word to word, we can understand this also by reading NCERT, gentleman please put little more effort on explanations , -one of your student
Hii sir.. Awesome series sir.. I hv a doubt.. you had said that taking or giving loan is capital expenditure.... but while talking about capital receipts u hv given example of loan received from foreign govt and international organizations...... u ll explain please...
Hi Bharat... For a bank the deposits are liabilities(bcz bank has to pay interest to the depositors) and the loans are assets(bcz the borrower pays interest to the banks).... Similarly, when Central Govt gives loans to State Govts, these loans are financial assets to the Central Govt. So these loans come under Capital Expenditure(acc to the definition given in Part 3 lecture by Ayussh Sir).... Now, when our Govt takes loans from Foreign Govt, the former has to pay interest to the later, so it's creating liability for our Govt, so these loans come under Capital Receipts(acc to the definition given in Part 4 lecture by Ayussh Sir)..... All this is acc to my knowledge. Excuse me if there is any mistake. Thank u!
