Last month, the Government presented the Budget Speech for 2021.
However, there exist inconsistencies in the reported budget estimates which results in a lack of credibility and uncertainty over what the actual figure is.
Which one is the Government’s official number?
2 documents released on the same day report 2 different numbers on Government expenditure, revenue, & deficit.
Refer the Public Report on Budget 2021 (http://publicfinance.lk/2020/12/10/public-report-on-the-2021-budget/) to find out more details.
