Competitive federalism – Which are India’s hot States?

UK India Business Council (UKIBC) |

India is undergoing a historic phase of federalism, where states are playing a key role in the nation’s growth story. The central government’s focus on both co-operative federalism (the centre’s co-operation with states) and competitive federalism (competition between states) is crucial to this.

Following the 14th Finance Commission, the states are now receiving a higher share of tax devolution from the centre (42 per cent compared to an earlier 32 per cent). As a result, the states have been given the opportunity to become equal partners in determining India’s fiscal balance.
