PRUDENT BUT LACKING IN POLITICAL BOLDNESS
Watch Dr Pratap Bhanu Mehta (above) talk about the politics of Budget 2016 on 5 March, 2016, at the 5-Institute Budget Seminar, where 5 policy research institutes gathered to analyse the union budget. Dr Mehta calls the budget prudent but lacking in political boldness, questioning its efficacy in the long run.
The five institutes that participate in this annual seminar, in its 10th year now, include: Centre for Policy Research; Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER); National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP); India Development Foundation (IDF); and National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER).
