The Kejriwal Government is the only government in the whole country, which has been keeping its progress report and public expenditure in front of the public with complete transparency for the past 5 years continuously through the Outcome Budget. In this series, Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia who holds the finance portfolio presented the Outcome Budget for the financial year 2021-22 before the house in the assembly on Friday.

On this occasion, Shri Sisodia said, “in the 75 years of the country’s independence, many governments came to India, but under the leadership of Chief Minister Shri Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi government is the only government which started this tradition and fixed its own accountability to the residents. Idea is to let people know where the proposals introduced in the previous year’s budget stand and how it is benefitting people of Delhi. Whether we were able to work on our promises or not. The Kejriwal government does not get stuck in files and rhetoric, it fulfills all its promises.”

What is the Kejriwal Government’s Outcome Budget?

Outcome Budget is an annual exercise of the Kejriwal Government that seeks to ensure complete transparency and accountability in public spending. This is ensured by mapping budget outlays to 1,036 Output and Outcome indicators. When the government initiates a scheme and allocates funds for basic infrastructure and capital expenditure, this is the output. But Outcome refers to the benefits that people get from that scheme. For example, if the government installs an X-ray machine in a hospital, it is the output of the government, but how many people have been tested through that machine is its outcome.
