About the Book

Public Finance continues in its stride in presenting the latest information on Indian budget. Over two generations, it has virtually become an encyclopedia on all financial matters of the Government of India, serving as a textbook for students, teachers and the general public and a reference volume for researchers and others. It is equally useful for competitive examinations conducted by various professional and employment-providing bodies. It covers the UGC CBCS syllabus and the syllabi of many Indian universities for honours, postgraduate and professional courses.

The book follows a logical and systematic approach. Thus, it is divided into two parts. Part I provides an analytical and comprehensive discussion of both the basics and frontiers of the theory of public finance. Part II covers the set-up, issues and working of Indian fiscal field mounted upon the theoretical underpinnings and international practices and experience. The illustrations are drawn mainly from the Indian scene, with a cross - reference to international experience. The book uses all the modern-day tools of pedagogy like Learning Objectives, Key Terms, Summary, Review Questions and Exercises.
