Budget Briefs

An annual series aimed at strengthening transparency in India’s public management system and fostering greater engagement between citizens and government. Using government reported data, the briefs analyse trends in allocations, expenditures, outputs and outcomes of key social sector programmes. The focus is on making government data more accessible to citizens and advocating with the government to create citizen friendly data portals. These briefs are published in the run-up to the annual Government of India budget in February every year.
