He said the government is, by and large, sticking to the fiscal consolidation roadmap after the end of the pandemic, which had seen some expansion because of the high spending.

Even during the pandemic, the government’s spending was “calibrated and targeted”, Das noted.

“After the pandemic, the government has announced a fiscal consolidation roadmap. And by and large, they’re sticking to that,” he said.

The governor noted that even recently, a statement has been made by the finance ministry that the government will stick to the fiscal deficit, and they are targeting this fiscal consolidation roadmap
