Banking and Finance

1. The RBI’s Report on State Government Budgets: Three Key Takeaways

A report titled “State Finances:” was published by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). A Study of Budgets for 2022 and 2023,” which will be held on January 16, 2023, with the topic “Capital Formation in India: The Function of States.”


The report is a once-a-year publication that compares actual and revised/provisional accounts for 2020–2021 and 2021–2022, respectively, with information, analysis, and an evaluation of state government finances for 2022–2023 (FY23).


The following are the three most significant findings from the RBI report:


  1. Debt to GDP The state’s debt to GDP (gross domestic product) ratio remains extremely high, according to the report.


  1. The ratio of debt to GDP has decreased from 31.1 per cent in 2020-21 to 29.5 per cent in 2022-23. States may have to pay more to meet their obligations if the debt-deficit burden is high.


  1. The Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management (FRBM) review committee, which was led by N K Singh, suggested that states should have a debt-to-GDP ratio of 20%.


  1. The report states that state interest payments will rise to 2% of GDP in 2020–21 from 1.7% in 2017–18 and that states will expect them to fall to 1.8% in 2022–23. Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, and West Bengal have the highest interest payments to revenue receipts ratios.


  1. This suggests that a significant portion of these states’ revenues are used to pay interest, leaving them with less money to spend on other areas of high priority like education or health care.


Contingent Obligations 


  • The report asserts that state governments’ contingent liabilities have also significantly increased.


  • In the event that a state-owned entity defaults on a loan, the obligations of the state government to repay the principal and interest are referred to as contingent liabilities.


  • State governments issued more guarantees, now totalling Rs. 3.12 lakh crore in 2017, or 2% of GDP, to Rs. 7.4 lakh crore, or 3.7% of the GDP.


  • At the end of March 2021, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Uttar Pradesh had the most outstanding guarantees.


  • The state’s funds are unfavourably impacted by the state-possessed power circulation organizations.
  • The 18 major states would incur a cost of 2.3% of GDP for a bailout, according to an RBI study.


OPS (Old Pension Scheme) 


  • Additionally, the report raises new concerns, including the fact that some states would rather return to the Old Pension Scheme (OPS).


  • As it became clear that financing the OPS would be difficult, a new pension framework was implemented at the beginning of the 2000s to reduce the state’s financial burden.


  • States like Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh have now decided to withdraw from the new pension scheme, putting state budgets in jeopardy despite the fact that the majority of states agreed to it at the time.


  • Pensions already receive a significant portion of state tax revenues; in 2020–21, Rs. pensions received an allocation of 3.86 lakh crore.


  • The OPS will increase pension liabilities even more, making it harder to spend money in a positive way.
