    Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee criticises Centre over fiscal policy

    Banerjee, who is also the chairperson of the Global Advisory Board on the Covid-19 pandemic set up by the West Bengal government, said while speaking on the continuous increase in cess for the last seven years, "The government has a fiscal problem.
