Economic News Within a fortnight of UP's farm loan waiver and calls for the same in other states, a foreign brokerage today estimated the burden from such populist measures to touch 2 per cent of GDP by the 2019 elections. "Farm loan waivers of up to 2 per cent of GDP in the run up to the 2019 hustings pose fiscal/rate risk and impacts credit culture," analysts at Bank of America Merill Lynch said in a note today. They said the Yogi Adityanathgovernment's debt waiver of USD 5 billion or 0.4 per cent of the state GDP, will lead other states to follow such populist suit. Even though the Centre has asked the states to take care of its finances while declaring such schemes, the note said the states will continue to be in breach of the indicative 3-3.5 per cent fiscal deficit numbers.
