is deficit budget a sign of govt inefficiency

Dear student,
Deficit budget is not a sign of the inefficiency of the government. Deficit budget means that the receipts of the government are less the expenditure. Generally, budget deficit is seen as a positive sign. High government spending is seen in terms of expenditure on development works, infrastructure, etc. Such expenditure has a positive impact on the economic growth of country. 

However, it must be noted that if budget deficit is on account of high government expenditure on recurring needs then it is criticed.
