Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The book is an outcome of thorough and sustained research activities of the authors. The book narrows a significant gap between the theoretical and practical aspects of financial administrations, as it analyses and synthesises, simultaneously, the implication for Financial Administration theory and practice.

The book entails what is inherent in the Indian Financial System along with covering areas of conceptual framework. The chapters are set in such a manner that they connect vividly to the prescribed syllabi of Financial Administration, a core paper in Public Administration in undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The book also caters to the needs of State and Civil Administrative Service examinations.

Besides dealing with Tax Administration in India, Ministry of Finance and Centre-State fiscal relations, the book also deals with types and essentials of budgeting while highlighting the budgeting procedure being followed in India. It covers all about Finance Commissions, especially the Thirteenth Financial Commission and the audit and accounting. The book also gives an explicit explanation on public debt, deficit financing and monetary and fiscal policy of India.

The updated text, written from students' point of view is presented in a straightforward, precise and lucid manner. The concepts have been explained and analysed in relevance to current Indian scenario.
