Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today presented a vote-on-account budget for the financial year 2019-20 in the State Assembly, allocating funds for a number of welfare schemes promised by his party on the eve of the last Assembly elections.

The total budgetary outlay proposed by the Chief Minister for the financial year is Rs. 1,82,017 crore. Of this, the revenue expenditure is Rs 1,31,629 crore and the capital expenditure is Rs 32,815 crore.

For 2019-20, the estimated revenue surplus is Rs 6,564 crore, and the fiscal deficit is Rs 27,749 crore - 2.81% of the GSDP.

The Chief Minister said that as per the finance accounts of the State government certified by the Accountant General, the total expenditure in 2017-18 was Rs 1,43,133 crore and the revenue receipts were Rs 88,824 crore. The expenditure on revenue account was Rs 85,365 crore. The revenue surplus was thus Rs 3,459 crore. The capital expenditure was Rs 23,902 crore.

?As per the revised estimates, the total expenditure in 2018-19 is estimated at Rs 1,61,857 crore. Of this, revenue expenditure is Rs 1,19,027 crore while capital expenditure is Rs 28,053 crore. The estimated surplus on revenue account Rs 353 crore," he added.
