MUMBAI: States’ finances improved in FY23, and there is a need to look at asset monetisation to help garner non-tax revenues, a Reserve Bank report said on Monday.

In the report on state budgets, which is done annually, the Reserve Bank said road, transport and power sectors hold considerable potential where the states can undertake asset sales.

“States need to scale up their initiatives for asset monetisation in order to increase non-tax revenue. The monetisation of assets unlocks their value, eliminates their holding cost and enables scarce public funds to be deployed into new projects, thus fast-tracking new infrastructure creation,” the report recommended.

States possess a sizeable infrastructure asset base with significant potential in roads, transport and power sectors, which can be looked at, the report said.

It recommended mobilising revenues by undertaking a comprehensive review of unutilised land assets and converting them into revenue-generating industrial estates or doing an outright sale.

The RBI report also said that in the case of non-operational public sector undertakings (PSUs), states may expedite their liquidation to curb losses.
