Please tell that in the general budget, how much budget the central government allocates for Delhi, it will be clear after a few hours. The AAP MP says that the Modi government has been ignoring Delhi for a long time. He said that our government has been demanding for a long time to increase the share of central taxes, provide additional funds to the corporations and increase the additional budget allocation for the capital. However, the power has changed in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, in such a situation it will also be interesting to see how much budget the integrated MCD gets from the Center this time.

The AAP MP said that the municipal corporation, which is facing financial crisis, is also expected to get funds from the central budget. He said that he had demanded Rs 12,000 crore from the Center to bail out the Municipal Corporation of Delhi from the financial crisis. Despite this, not even a single rupee was allocated last year. The Finance Minister of Delhi says that similarly, the central government will also increase the amount received as grant for Disaster Response, we had also demanded this. In the year 2021, Delhi got Rs 161 crore under this head, whereas in 2022 it was reduced to just Rs 5 crore. In this regard, the Delhi Government has also sent a proposal in the meeting with the Finance Minister.

Let us tell you that in the meeting held with the Finance Ministers of all the States and Union Territories recently, Finance Minister Manish Sisodia reiterated the demand for providing adequate funds in the budget. He said that the Center had not given a single rupee to the BJP-ruled MCD even last year. While two lakh crore rupees were given for other municipal corporations of the country. Now the Municipal Corporation of Delhi will work in a new format, in such a situation, the Aam Aadmi Party government hopes that the Center will allocate funds as per the demand made for the MCD. He said that Delhi’s share in central taxes has not increased since 2001-02. The government has been constantly demanding from the Center to increase it, but still Delhi gets only Rs 325 crore from central taxes. While the people of Delhi pay tax of more than 1.5 lakh crores to the government. Delhi’s GST collection has also increased continuously in the last few years.
