Milestones mark Chidambaram's tenure as FM

December 1, 2008

On the expenditure front, Chidambaram had enforced a tight leash with revenue expenditure growing by only 12.69 per cent year-on-year. But capital expenditure, which is required to create productive assets, actually registered a negative CAGR of 3.2 per cent during his tenure.

The last three years also saw a rush of capital into the country as portfolio investors pumped in record money into the stock market and private equity players too contributed to this growth.

This created a piquant problem for the government and also for the Reserve Bank of India.
