Uttarakhand receives Rs 20,308 cr from 13th Finance Commission
The 13th Finance Commission grants Rs 20,308.10 crore to the Uttarakhand state for 2010-15. The demand by state government was of Rs 40,000 crore, but the sate has alloted Rs 20,308.10 crore with a view that if funds are spent properly and honestly, the economic condition of the uttarakhand can surely improve. Last time in the 12th Finance Commission Uttarakhand got Rs 12,194 crore. The state is taking pride this time in getting Rs 1,000 crore as a special performance incentive which it only shares with other states like Sikkim and Assam.
