    Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will highlight the key points of the interim Budget, including the fiscal consolidation roadmap in the customary post-budget meeting of the central board of the RBI, scheduled tomorrow.

    The meeting will take place against the backdrop of a slight deviation from the fiscal deficit target for the current financial year, tax rebate for income up to  5 lakh rupees and income support scheme for 12 crore farmers.

    In the Interim Budget, the government has projected a fiscal deficit of 3.4 per cent of the GDP for 2019-20, against the earlier target of 3.3 per cent.
