Union Budget 2023: Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday presented her fifth budget in Parliament. The budget is very crucial for the Modi government as it is the last full-fledged budget before the next General Elections scheduled to be held in 2024. According to reports, the finance minister held several rounds of discussions with various stakeholders, before giving the final touch to the Union Budget for 2023-24. This year, the budget is said to be an exercise of managing several objectives: movement to fiscal prudence, stimulating growth without accompanying inflation, garnering more resources through non-tax measures and providing sops where necessary. Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said India’s budget would attempt to meet the hopes and aspirations of common citizens and be a ray of hope for the world amid global economic turmoil. He said the budget will also strive to fulfil people's hopes, aspirations and also boost the hopes with which the world is looking at India.

    Budget for world's fastest growing economy: Key numbers to be watched

    * Fiscal Deficit: The budgeted fiscal deficit, which is the difference between the government expenditure and income, for the current fiscal ending March 2023 is 6.4 per cent, against 6.71 per cent in the last fiscal. The number for 2023-24 would be in focus as it is widely expected that the government would open its purse strings in an election year.

    * Disinvestment/Privatisation: In current fiscal year the budgeted disinvestment target is likely to be missed, like the past four years. It is expected the government would set a realistic target for next fiscal.

    * Capital Expenditure: The government's planned capital expenditure for this fiscal year is budgeted at Rs 7.5 lakh crore, higher than Rs 5.5 lakh crore in the last fiscal. The government has been pushing infrastructure creation and also incentivising states to step up capex.
    * Tax Revenue: The Budget had pegged direct and indirect tax mop-up at Rs 14.20 lakh crore and Rs 13.30 lakh crore for current fiscal, taking the total figure to Rs 27.50 lakh crore. The government's tax revenues are expected to overshoot the budget estimates by about Rs 4 lakh crore on buoyant income tax and customs duty.

    * Borrowing: The government's gross borrowing budget was at Rs 14.31 lakh crore in current financial year ending March 31. The government borrows from the market to fund its fiscal deficit and with tax revenues seeing an uptick, the government has cut its gross borrowings by Rs 10,000 crore to Rs 14.21 lakh crore. The borrowing number would be watched by the market, especially on the back of expected higher capital expenditures to boost growth.

    * Nominal GDP: India's nominal GDP growth (real GDP plus inflation) in the current fiscal is estimated to be 15.4 per cent. The numbers for next fiscal would be lower as the inflation has come down. The Budget is expected to give an outline on the nominal GDP growth numbers. Real GDP growth in current fiscal is projected at 7 per cent and come down to 6-6.5 per cent in the next.

    * Spotlight would also be on spending on key schemes, like NREGA, as well as key sectors like health and education.
