About FPI

The Government established the Fiscal Policy Institute (FPI) in 2007. The setting up of FPI signifies the commitment of the State to institutionalize the process of implementing the Karnataka Fiscal Responsibility Act-2002 (KFRA) in letter and spirit. The activities and services of FPI are expected to help imbibe the spirit of the Seventeen Principles of fiscal management under the provisions of Sec 4 of the Karnataka Fiscal Responsibility Act-2002.

Director's Message

I consider the opportunity given to me to work as the Director of Fiscal Policy Institute as a privilege that seldom comes in the career of a public servant. Within a short span of its existence, FPI has emerged as an institution of repute, within and outside Karnataka. This institution is an interface between the academia as well as practitioners and the Govt. of Karnataka, specifically Finance Dept. Its primary role is to give valuable inputs for fiscal policy and budget formulation including the required reforms. It is also mandated to meet the training requirements for capacity building for effective governance and efficient service delivery. Leading such an organisation is an engaging as well as a challenging task. With your support, I hope that FPI shall meet the expectations of all the stakeholders. Read More....
