Fiscal consolidation
 

Fiscal consolidation

According to Sharekhan in the Union Budget, the path of fiscal trajectory would be the most important part of the Union Budget 2022-2023, given that the fiscal deficit is higher than the historical average, triggered by the pandemic.

"Owing to the current fragile status of the economy, government support is still needed to sustain the ongoing economic momentum. Hence, the government may not opt for an aggressive fiscal consolidation path here on and will have to maintain a balance between economic growth and fiscal consolidation, which should bode well for the bond market. Given a sharp rise in GST collection and higher advance taxes, the government may find some cushion in actual fiscal deficit in FY22 despite revenue loss due to cuts in fuel excise duties, higher subsidies and a rise in expenditures due to extension of free foodgrain scheme until March 2022.

The government is likely to maintain its fiscal deficit target at 6.7% for FY22E," the brokerage has said.

Kick Starting the economy high on the agenda

According to Sharekhan, given the need to support economic revival, kick-starting the investment cycle would continue to be high on the policy agenda.

"Recent reports indicate that the budgetary allocation on capital expenditure could be around Rs. 6.5 trillion in 2022-23, up by close to 20% as compared to Rs. 5.5 trillion (26% up from 2019-20) in 2021-22.

Further, sustained focus towards the production-linked incentive and National Infrastructure Pipeline schemes, tax incentives for investments in Infrastructure Investment Trusts (InvITs) and continued thrust towards investments in agri infrastructure such as cold storage, warehousing, etc. are likely to be seen in upcoming Budget. Notably, so far, private investments remain sluggish in the country, which is of utmost importance to sustain ongoing recovery.
