New Delhi, Jan 17 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has demanded a substantial hike in the state's share of central taxes, an official statement said Thursday.
The figure had been frozen at Rs.325 crore since 2001-02 despite the size of the sate's annual plan going up from Rs.8,973 crore in 2001-02 to Rs.33,436 crore in 2012-13, the statement from the chief minster's office said.
Dikshit raised the demand at a pre-budget consultation with Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram.
"Delhi requires additional funds keeping in view its huge expenditure on development of world-class infrastructure, implementation of a number of schemes through direct cash transfer mode, allocation of 65 percent of its budget for social sector schemes and the ever-increasing population," said the statement.
