What is the FRBM limit?

For FY 2020, the fiscal deficit limit was relaxed to 3.5% by the Central Government. As per FRBM Act, the fiscal deficit limit should be 3% of the GDP, but there have been requests from state governments to increase the limit to either 4% or 5% due to increased borrowings, expenditures, and reduced revenue generation due to Covid-19 pandemic.
