Key terms…
Fiscal Deficit is the excess of expenditure over government’s receipts in an accounting year.
More simply, it equals the amount of borrowings made by the government in a year.

FD = Total Expenditure – Revenue Receipts – Disinvestment Receipts – Recovery of loans

Higher Fiscal Deficit leads to Increased Govt. Borrowing leads to Increased Spending leads to
Greater Money Supply leads to Inflation leads to Demand for money exceeding supply leads to
Higher Interest Rates

Revenue Deficit is the excess of revenue expenditure over revenue receipts.

Primary Deficit is measured by Fiscal Deficit less interest payments.

Subsidies, as defined by the Economist, are payments, usually made by the government, to keep
prices below what they would be in a free market, or to keep alive businesses that would otherwise
go bust, or to make activities happen that otherwise would not take place. Subsidies can be a form
of protectionism, by making domestic goods and services artificially competitive against imports.
Inflation means rising prices. Inflation erodes the purchasing power of a unit of currency. More simply,
since prices rise, Re 1 spent tomorrow will buy you lesser amount than what it can buy you today.
