Mission & Vision
The State Government aims at enhancing fiscal stability through enhanced revenue receipts. The Government stands for more governmental intervention and enhanced governmental expenditure. Expenditure contraction is not its policy or mission. The Government aims at increasing Gross State Domestic Product ratio to 14 percent in 2010-11. It aims at eliminating revenue deficit by 2010-11. Liquidity management of this Government is commendable.
 
The State has not entered into overdraft even for a single day during the financial year 2008-09. Other major achievements include E-based tax administration; Streamlining of procedures; Greater devaluation of fiscal powers through transparency in procedures; Fiscal autonomy to deserving Public Sector Undertakings; More financial powers to Administrative Secretariats and Directorates; Modernisation and transparency.
