The total receipts are expected to be Rs. 42,92,000 crores of which revenue receipts would be around Rs. 22,87,000 crores. In the budget the government may end up spending Rs. 28,88,000 crores resulting into revenue deficit of Rs. 5,67,000 crores which is 2.41%. Effective revenue deficit as per her calculations is expected to be 1.5%. Fiscal deficit according to her is expected to be Rs. 7,84,800 crores which is 3.34%. However she feels in case of GDP growing at a slower rate the fiscal deficit may be 3.54%

According to her, special attention is likely to be given to agriculture, infrastructure, education, health, rural development and MSMEs. There may be a possibility on rationalisation of indirect taxes to promote "Make in India" and relief on personal taxation by raising the minimum exemption limit by Rs. 1 Lakh or 1.5 Lacs.

Government has to target higher growth rate so as to make India a $ 5 trillion dollars economy in next 4 years.
