Analysing fiscal discipline and strategic prioritisation of public expenditure using secondary data from 1980–81 to 2018–19, and the operational efficiency of public expenditure using primary data about the construction of check dams, it is found that fiscal discipline in Odisha is unsustainable due to lack of strategic prioritisation and operational inefficiency.
