CLAIM ID

Goa received an estimated budget of Rs.432 crores from Congress in the 2013-14 fiscal year.

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.

While speaking to an audience during an election campaign in Goa on January 30, 2022, Union Home Minister Amit Shah emphasized that the BJP has made significant progress in Goa and is committed to the small state. He claims that the budget from the central government has been increased from Rs.432 crores in 2013-14 to Rs.2567 crores in 2020-21 but on the other hand, the statistics are incorrect.

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.
