  • This is slightly lower than the estimated Rs 1.04 lakh crore that the government is set to earn in the current fiscal year.
  • The increase in the current fiscal year’s estimate is due to the RBI paying a dividend of Rs 87,416 crore in May last year.
  • In addition to the dividends from the RBI and public sector banks, the government also expects to receive dividends from Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs).
  • The total dividend income from the RBI, public sector banks, and CPSEs is projected to be Rs 1.50 lakh crore for the next financial year.
  • This higher dividend income, along with improved tax mobilisation, is expected to help the government achieve its fiscal deficit glide path.
