The fiscal deficit has actually increased as compared to the previous financial year, from 32300 crores in 2014-15,, and now rising to above 40000 crores.
It must be noted that during 2012-13
financial year, there was an excess financials of 1760 crores with TN, while it
had converted to a deficit of 1790 crores in 2014, with the deficit getting
increased by 258% in 2014-15, and 48 % in 2015-16, and 67 % in 2016-17. The
fiscal deficit has been primarily attributed to the freebies given by the
government besides the failure to collect the taxes, Since TN has been
reeling under huge fiscal deficit, and there are possibilities of the state
losing out on investments by corporate and industrial giants. While Udhay plan
has been cited by many as the reason for fiscal deficit, the same plan being
followed in Maharashtra and Gujarat has not given them fiscal deficits.
