In absolute terms, revenue receipts stood at ₹9.07 lakh crore at the end of October. For the entire 2019-20, the revenue receipts have been pegged at ₹19.62 lakh crore.
Capital expenditure stood at 59.5% of the BE during April-October period as compared to 59% in the year-ago period, the CGA data showed.
Total expenditure during April-October stood at ₹16.54 lakh crore, or 59.4% of the BE.
The government has pegged its total expenditure for 2019-20 at ₹27.86 lakh crore.
The fiscal deficit figure in monthly accounts during a financial year is not necessarily an indicator of fiscal deficit for the year, as per the CGA.
Its data gets impacted by temporal mismatch between flow of non-debt receipts and expenditure up to that month on account of various transitional factors both on receipt and expenditure side, which may get substantially offset by the end of the financial year.
