Mapping India’s Finances

As a useful adjunct to other macroeconomic accounts, this paper describes financial flows between different sectors of the Indian economy from 1955 to 2015. It finds that the consolidated government sector has the largest net deficit, while the households sector has the largest net surplus. The private corporate sector is running larger deficits than at any other time in the past, implying more reliance on external credits. With liberalisation and globalisation, the rest of the world sector is now the second-largest net surplus sector in the economy.
