New Delhi, March 8

The government today sought Parliament’s nod for a net additional cash spending of Rs 85,315 crore in the current fiscal of which a large chunk will go towards compensating states for revenue loss suffered post the GST rollout.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal moved the fourth batch of Supplementary Demands for Grants for 2017-18 in the Lok Sabha.

The additional expenditure is being incurred to match the revised estimates provided in the Budget and will not impact the 3.5% fiscal deficit.
