At the same time, there is a target of getting revenue of Rs 4,45,871.59 crore through tax. In this, the state’s tax revenue will be Rs 2,62,634 crore, while the state’s share in central taxes will be Rs 1,83,237.59 crore. Out of the total expenditure to be made by the government in this financial year, Rs 5,02,354.01 crore will be done from the revenue account and Rs 1,87,888.42 crore from the capital account.

On the other hand, it is noteworthy that where after reducing the total expenditure in the last financial year, the government had to bear a loss of more than Rs 24 thousand crores on the consolidated fund, whereas in this financial year, after all the expenses, this deficit has been reduced to about Rs 6 thousand crores.

The biggest-ever budget in the state’s history will pave the way for the development of UP. This time, a target has been set to keep the fiscal deficit at 3.48 per cent of GDP, while the fiscal deficit of the previous budget was 3.92 per cent.
