Finance Ministry decides to provide additional amount of upto Rs 15,000 cr to States

The Finance Ministry has decided to provide an additional amount of upto 15 thousand crore rupees to States as interest free 50 year loan for spending on capital projects. The Department of Expenditure has issued fresh guidelines in this regard on the Scheme of Financial Assistance to States for Capital Expenditure for the financial year 2021-22.  
 
Capital expenditure creates employment, especially for the poor and unskilled,  has a high multiplier effect, enhances the future productive capacity of the economy and results in a higher rate of economic growth.  The Finance Ministry said, despite the adverse financial position of the Centre, it was decided last year to launch a Scheme for Special Assistance to States for Capital Expenditure.
 
Under the Scheme, financial assistance is provided to the State Governments in the form of 50-year interest free loan. An amount not exceeding 12 thousand crore rupees was earmarked for the scheme for the financial year 2020-21 and a sum of over 11 thousand 830 crore rupees was released to the States. This helped to sustain state level capital expenditure in the pandemic year. In view of the positive response to the scheme and considering the requests of the State Governments, the Government has decided to continue the scheme in the year 2021-22.
