The Finance Minister said that about 1.52 lakh crore has been earmarked for development work. Even though no new tax was imposed, the state expects to collect a revenue of Rs 2,18,502.70 crore. Out of that, the state’s collection from tax collection would be Rs 40,555.47 crore. He said the expected fiscal deficit was Rs 22,510.78 crore — 2.97 per cent of Gross State Domestic Product.
