Fiscal consolidation and strained State-Center Relations
- Recent concerns over excessive dolling out of freebies by States are often interpreted as intrusion into the federal powers of the States.
- States push back on this issue on the grounds of welfare provisioning and protection of vulnerable sections of the population.
- This article discusses on the issue on how there is an evident strain in the relation between Centre and States where there are different parties in power. The fiscal federalism is mostly affected and this leads to back and forth exchanges and blame game starts. This undoubtedly leads to political tensions which the common people finally has to pay for.
- Thus, the current debate around freebies needs to be viewed in this larger context of sub national fiscal consolidation.
