In January 2006, the Madhya Pradesh Government enacted the Fiscal Responsibilities and Budget Management (FRBM) Act. It laid down a reform agenda through a fiscal correction path in the medium term with the long term goal of securing growth stability for its economy. The Government's commitment to carry forward these reforms is reflected in the policy initiatives announced in its subsequent budgets. The benefits of the FRBM legislation have been realised in terms of achieving of revenue and fiscal deficit targets relative to GSDP and keeping the ratio of total liabilities to GSDP within the ceiling limit of 40 per cent prescribed under the FRBM Act Though, the Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG) has been commenting upon the State's Finances, the comments formed part of the civil audit report and remained camouflaged in the large body of audit findings on compliance and performance audits. In recognition of the need to bring State finances centre-stage, a stand-alone report on State Government finances was considered appropriate. Accordingly from the report year 2008-09 onwards, the C&AG decided to bring out a separate volume titled "Report on State Finances".
