CHENNAI, Jan 19 � Ahead of the 2015-16 Budget, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said there was a need to rationalise all subsidies and ensure stability in policies to attract investment and drive growth, reports PTI.

�From January 1 LPG subsidy is going through banks... We have to gradually rationalise all possible subsidies,� the Minister said while addressing a CII function here.

The government is expected to incorporate the suggestions of the Expenditure Finance Commission headed by former RBI Governor Bimal Jalan in the budget proposals for 2015-16.
