Today Finance Minister, P. Chidambaram will table the Economic Survey 2013-14 in the Parliament, a day ahead of the Union Budget which will be presented in Lok Sabha on February 28.
Earlier yesterday Railway Minister, Mr. Pawan Kumar Bansal had presented Rail Budget 2013-14 in the Parliament.
The Economic Survey to be tabled in Parliament today is likely to suggest a series of steps to arrest the declining GDP growth, which is estimated to be at the decade-low of 5 % in the current fiscal year.
Prepared by a team of economists, led by Chief Economic Advisor Raghuram Rajan, the Survey is likely to make a strong case for accelerating economic reforms to neutralise domestic and global factors which have stymied growth.
Considered to be an official assessment of the country’s economy, the Economic Survey is customarily tabled in Parliament by Finance Minister a day ahead of the General Budget. The Economic Survey document is viewed as being important because it prescribes steps for the government to deal with various economic problems, leaving the onus of taking hard decisions on the government.
