145 users have liked.

Chapter 8 of Finance Commission-XIII ( FC-XIII) made recomendations ( Dec'2009 ) on basis for tax sharing 32% of collection by Center with inter -se  distribution of the states share amongst the states on the following criteria :

Criteria as below :

1. Population    :  25%  weight with 1971 Census

2.  Area              :  10%

3. Fiscal capacity Distance : 47.5%

4. Fiscial Discipline              : 17.5%

With above logic,  UP got 19.677% share followed by Bihar : 10.917%, West Bengal : 7.264%, Madhya Pradesh : 7.120%. 

Bigger revenue / tax collection states having lower tax share by Center : Maharastra : 5.199%,  Karnataka : 4.328%, Punjab : 1.389%, Andhra Pradesh : 6.937%, Gujarat : 3.041%,  Tamil Nadu : 4.969%

Now Karnataka / Bangalore has to raise loans for METRO

With small token amount allocated for METRO project,  BMRCL will be forced to raise bank loans.

Same time,  Indian Railways does not have funds,  so GOK is forced to share  Railway project cost by 50%.

Even the Suburban Rail / Commuter Rail Bangalore is waiting for funds / approval,  both GOK and Indian Railways till finding out the viaility of  the project.

Double blow for State Karnataka : Collect more Central Taxes thru Excise and Customs,  get less Center share and again come forward the cos sharing projects like METRO, Railways with commitments of 20,000 Crore.

If such lopsided tax sharing  between State and Center,  how will India grow even after 60 years of Freedom. comment guidelines
