NON-PLAN EXPENDITURE

The government's total spending can be divided into two broad sub-heads — plan and non-plan — with the latter constituting the bulk of expenditure.
 
Non-plan expenditure is what the government spends on the so-called non-productive areas and is mostly obligatory in nature. It includes salaries, subsidies, loans and interest.
 
Plan expenditure, on the other hand, pertains to the money set aside for productive purposes like various projects of ministries. It is spent on productive asset creation through Centrally-sponsored programmes and flagship schemes.
