The proliferation of fiscal deficit was quite visible as the revenue was low and the expenditure was increasing. Despite this, the government has not cut down its expenditure, and this is a good news, he further said.
He said that the economy is looking in good shape and the IMF has already indicated that there will be a good growth during 2021-22 and 2022-23.
