Deficit financing means printing new additional currency to finance public expenditure. This is done when govt does not have funds and instead of taking loan govt finances itself by printing additional currency. It makes value of currency down in foreign market but saves from paying interest to any body but printing of additional currency can be done to some extent only.

When public expenditure exceeds revenue, it creates a gap of instability in the economy. So govt in order to mitigate this instability, uses one of the methods of fiscal policy like deficit financing, which implies printing of domestic currency.
