Abstract:
The double-digit growth rate of the recently bifurcated Andhra Pradesh stands in sharp contrast to the sliding growth witnessed in the neighboring Tamil Nadu. In terms of per capita income, Tamil Nadu has moved from its fifth position held in 2011-12 to an alarming ninth position in 2017-18, losing out to Telangana and three other states. The turmoil of bifurcation is no doubt turned around for Andhra Pradesh. But the political vacuum created by the passing away of the two popular Chief Ministers in the case of Tamil Nadu, Dr. J. Jayalalitha and Dr. M. Karunanidhi has only taken a worse turn. The economic indices suggest that the deeply-set trend for Tamil Nadu has its origin at the competing populist measures announced through election manifestos initiated by these two stalwarts. Against this overall context, this article makes a comparative analysis of the budgetary allocations of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh in the study period of 2011-18 to check how far they are in tandem with the targets, announced in the respective vision documents. To cross-check if allocations and implementations have achieved their results or not, we have relied on the state-wise and the sector-wise data given by RBI.
