As in the case of other democratic societies, government budgeting is a constitutional obligation in India. Given the huge size and federal structure of Indian economy, budgeting is a complex task which involves considerable efforts on the part of the Ministry of Finance and other related Ministries and Departments. With the help of their financial advisers, individual Ministries/Departments formulate their spending plans on the basis of their previous year spending and the new schemes and projects which they intend to take up. This paper outlines the phases of budgetary cycle in India focusing largely on preparation of the budget, legalisation of the budget, execution of the budget and auditing of accounts.
