The government expects Rs 28,000 crore from the RBI as interim dividend for 2018-19 based on the financial position of the central bank.
Last financial year, the RBI had paid an interim dividend of Rs 10,000 crore to the Centre.
The customary post-budget meeting will take place against the backdrop of a slight deviation from the fiscal deficit target for the current financial year, a tax rebate for income up to Rs 5 lakh and income support scheme for 12 crore farmers.
