He said the government's fiscal math "is completely on track" and dismissed media reports earlier this week that it was seeking Rs 360,000 crore ($49.51 billion) from the Reserve Bank of India's reserves.
Garg added that the only proposal concerning the reserves that the government was discussing was to fix the appropriate economic capital framework of the RBI.
The government and the RBI have been clashing on several issues including the reserves question, and a government proposal to ease the capital and lending curbs for state-run banks.
