Fiscal Marksmanship in Health Expenditure

Experience of Indian States

It is of utmost importance to elicit a debate on the budgetary discipline around micro variables. These micro-level deviations result in macro-level errors in budget forecasting.

The deviations in capital health spending are high compared to those in revenue health spending. This may have an impact on the improvement in health over the long term.
