However, by 2023-24, this ratio has almost doubled to 27.8%, showing a consistent upward trend over the years. On average, the debt-to-GSDP ratio was 21.5% between 2014-22. Additionally, in the fiscal years 2020-21 and 2021-22, the state failed to keep the debt-to-GSDP ratio within the recommended 25% ceiling set by the Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management Act.
