Selective stimulus possible for industry: RangarajanJune 29th, 2012 - 5:11 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, June 29 (IANS) Stating that action would be taken to cut the subsidy bill as early as possible, C. Rangarajan, chairman of the Economic Advisory Council of the prime minister, said it was possible for the government to provide a “selective” stimulus package for industry.
“I think the stimulus package which was introduced in 2008-09…it is a bit difficult. Because we now have a high fiscal deficit,” Rangarajan told reporters here.
“But within the framework of containing the fiscal deficit, it is possible to provide some selective stimulus,” he said.
Rangarajan, however, said action would be taken as early as possible to cut the government’s subsidy bill. “We must ensure that fiscal deficit is contained at the budgeted level,” he added.
