Expenditure controllers in the Government are well aware of the problem of bunching of expenditure at the end of the year. The paper attempts to re-examine this phenomena. It is argued that response to this annually recurring problem of bunching should not be that of simply laying down uniform spending norms. Measures to prevent bunching call for taking into account the composition of expenditure and the nature of programmes being implemented by different spending departments.
