How the rupee comes; how the rupee goes

Borrowings account for the singularly largest source of every rupee earned by the government and likewise interest payment is the biggest expense for every rupee spent.

Accounting for 27 paise of every rupee earned, borrowings overshadow excise at 19 paise, customs at 12 paise and non tax revenue at 16 paise, according to the Union Budget for 2001-02 tabled in Parliament Wednesday.

On the other hand interest payments account of 26 paise of every rupee spent followed by expenditure on defence at 14 paise, central plan at 14 paise and states' share of taxes and duties again at 14 paise of every rupee spent.

State's share of taxes, duties and assistance provided to them together account for 23 per cent of the government's expenditure, with nine paise of every rupee earned going into State and Union Territory Plan Assistance.

While corporation tax accounted for 10 paise of every rupee earned this fiscal, income tax collections accounted for nine per cent of the country's earnings in 2001-02.

The government spent upto 12 per cent of its revenue generated on `other non-plan expenditure' in 2000-01 whereas non-plan assistance to states and Union territories accounted for four paise of every rupee spent during the year.
