NEW DELHI: Delhi executive has cited its static share within the distribution of central taxes since 2001 as explanation why for its lack of ability to supply its contribution within the RRTS mission.
In its respond to Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority, the company appointed by way of the Supreme Court to meditate between the stakeholders to fast-track the development on the 82-km Delhi-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) hall, state’s transport department said the Centre had unfairly disadvantaged the federal government its rightful share from the divisible pool of central taxes.



“While Delhi’s contribution to the pool of Union’s tax collection has virtually doubled within the ultimate eight years, from Rs 54,705 crore in 2008-09 to Rs 1,08,882 crore in 2016-17, the grants it received in lieu of central taxes and tasks have remained stuck at Rs 325 crore. The department advised EPCA that it used to be not ready to supply price range for the mission due to inadequate finances to fulfill the cost,” said a supply.


Delhi executive had earlier this month accorded in-principle approval to the RRTS mission with a rider that the central executive must undergo the state’s share of Rs 1,138 crore within the Rs 31,902-crore mission.


A detailed presentation used to be made on this regard by way of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation, the company executing the mission, to EPCA ultimate week in presence of the officers of Delhi’s transport department. This had promoted EPCA to ask Delhi executive to share its general earnings within the ultimate 4 years and allocation made within the transport sector.
