In 2013-14, Goa received Rs.673.58 crores, up from Rs.438.42 crores in 2012-13. Congress had raised the grant by 53.64 percent from the previous year.
The central government provided grants-in-aid, according to the Goa Budget 2013-14, and contributions grew by 53.64 percent over the previous budget. The central government's assistance in the budget estimate for 2013-14 was Rs.673.58 crores, increasing from a revised estimate of Rs.438.42 crores in 2012-13.
On February 28, 2013, the then Finance Minister P.Chidambaram presented the 2013-14 budget. In his speech, he said that Rs.5,87,082 crores would be transferred to states under the share of taxes and non-plan grants in 2013-14, reports the Hindu.
The central government's grants-in-aid and contributions to Goa's budget estimate for 2020-21 increased to Rs.2373.01 crores from Rs.1935.69 crores in the revised estimate for 2019-20.
We mark the claim as misleading because the actual grants to Goa in the 2013-14 budget were Rs.673.58 crores, not Rs.432 crores as the Union Home Minister claimed.
