Performance Budgeting in India
This paper reviews the introduction of an improved system of government budgeting in India, and evaluates its success. The author finds that the information provided by the system is voluminous, produced annually, and published separately from the financial budget. It is not well adapted to the needs of decision makers. Moreover, the financial budget remains the focus of attention. The conclusion is that, while not achieving the majority of the objectives set for it, performance budgeting has provided information relevant to efficiency audits, enhanced external accountability, and increased receptivity to new ideas in government financial management.
