The present book is an excellent presentation of fiscal institutions and a careful analysis of the issues underlining budgetary policies in general and Indian experience in particular. Based on the curriculum prescribed by the University Grants Commission (UGC), it ideally caters to the academic needs of postgraduate students of Public Economics. Apart from the traditional topics of Public Finance, i.e. Taxation, Public Expenditure, Public Debt, Fiscal Policy, Federalism, etc. the book contains chapters on Public Sector vs. Private Sector, Theory of Public Choice and Changing Perspective about the Role of the Government. Special focus of the book is on Indian Public Finances including the fiscal crisis of 1991 and fiscal sector reforms. All the chapters have been updated in the second revised and enlarged edition and it contains a new chapter "Welfare Criteria: The Provision of Public Goods". New topics like Goods and Service Tax (GST), Direct Taxes Code (DTC), the Global Meltdown of 2008-09 and India's fiscal responses/stimulus and its consequent effects on economic recovery and fiscal stability have been dealt with.
