New Delhi: The Finance Ministry on Wednesday announced small-bore austerity measures, which included a cut in non-plan expenditure by 10 percent, to boost the economy without hampering the operational efficiency of the government.

The austerity measures include ban on government seminars in 5-Star hotels, apurchase of new vehicles, informed a Finance Ministry statement.

Also, government officials, barring top bureaucrats, have been asked to fly only in economy class for domestic tours.

The measures also include a complete ban on new appointments in government departments.

The 10 percent cut in non-plan expenditure will exclude interest payment, repayment of debt, defense budget, salaries and the pension bill, the statement said.

Government departments have been banned from holding meetings in 5-star hotels and officials barred from executive class air travel as part of a slew of austerity measures announced today to cut non-plan expenditure by 10 per cent.

Aiming to restrict the fiscal deficit to 4.8 per cent of GDP in 2013-14, the Finance Ministry has ordered all ministries and departments not to buy new vehicles, create new jobs or fill posts lying vacant for over one year.

It has also directed that the size of delegations going abroad should be kept at “absolute minimum.”

The government has been introducing austerity measures since 2008-09, most recently in November 2012.

“Such measures are intended at promoting fiscal discipline, without restricting the operational efficiency of the government. In the context of the current fiscal situation, there is a need to continue to rationalise expenditure and optimise available resources,” the Finance Ministry said.

Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram earlier said he had drawn a red line and would not allow the fiscal deficit to breach the target of 4.8 per cent of GDP in 2013-14.

The various austerity measures helped the government to contain the fiscal deficit at 4.9 per cent of GDP in the previous financial year, against the budgeted target of 5.1 per cent.

The circular came a day after Mr. Chidambaram met Financial Advisors of various ministries to impress upon them the need for austerity.
