Fiscal position OK, says Eetela

etelaFinance Minister Eetela Rajender, who met Union Minister for Civil Supplies Ramvilas Paswan, has sought 68,500 mt additional raise in monthly rice quota including Customs milling charges per quintal, boiled rice. The State availed only Rs 7,000 crore though it was eligible for Rs 15,000 crore, according to Central permits. The Finance Commission and RBI had declared that Gujarat and TS are deficit States but the fiscal position is not alarming, government said. Earlier,  after a review of fiscal position Rajender said that a revenue target of Rs 43,000 crore was fixed and they could accumulate Rs 37,534 crore but the expenditure was said to be as much. In the light of misuse of funds in loan-waiver, local bodies, universities, department-wise auditing will be intensified. Government is determined to take action against those indulging in misuse of funds.
