Abstract:
This paper examines the case of north eastern states of India in the framework of HIPC type of debt relief measures and observed that the impact of debt servicing on the developmental expenditure has been heterogeneous in the case of NE states and does not show any significant dominancy over public spending for socio economic development rather the high interest burden is the major obstacle to achieve debt sustainability. Further, high average cost of borrowing leads to the high cost of debt servicing. Therefore, HIPC type of debt relief measure or a direct debt relief measures may not be suitable for the Indian NE states but relief measures should be directed in the direction of making the borrowing cheaper which will be helpful to augment the developmental capital expenditure. It is recommended that policy measure can be under taken so as to make the NE states able to get relived from high cost of borrowing and increasing unsustainable debt burden.
