Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan economic package

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the Atma-nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan (or Self-reliant India Mission) and said that in the days to come his government would unveil the details of an economic package — worth Rs 20 lakh crore or 10% of India’s GDP in 2019-20 — aimed towards achieving this mission.

Is this a new package?

Not entirely. While the PM did not give the details, he did specify that this calculation of Rs 20 lakh crore includes what the government has already announced and the steps taken by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). This means the total amount of additional money — that is over and above what the government would have spent even in the absence of a Covid crisis — will not be Rs 20 lakh crore. It would be substantially less.


That’s because the PM has included the actions of RBI, India’s central bank, as part of the government’s “fiscal” package, even though only the government controls the fiscal policy and not the RBI (which controls the ‘monetary’ policy). Government expenditure and RBI’s actions are neither the same nor can they be added in this manner. Nowhere in the world is this done, clarifies Prof NR Bhanumurthy of NIPFP.
