India is described as a union of states and the bulk of responsibility for social and economic development lies with the state governments. It is accepted that it is the duty of the state governments to ensure that every citizen can enjoy the primary necessities of life proportionate with need. Therefore state government expenditure is an important instrument for the protection and promotion of socio-economic welfare of the people. An important issue which has gained prominence in the recent years is the impact of economic reforms on the expenditure pattern of state governments. The core of this study is to analyze the pattern of public expenditure in Tamil Nadu during pre and post reform period in order to understand the impact of economic reforms on that.
