Cambridge Scholars, 2008 - Political Science - 220 pages
The literature on fiscal decentralisation in India is few and far between. The collection of papers in this volume written by scholars who have done scholarly works on the theme seeks to fill the gap relating to the state sub-state level fiscal decentralisation in India. While the first paper by Anwar Shah, an internationally known expert on fiscal federalism, provides a general backdrop relating to fiscal decentralisation and macro management, all other papers critically review the various dimensions of fiscal decentralisation emerging in India since the implementation of the 73rd/74th constitutional amendments by the state governments. Two papers focus exclusively on Kerala which has won world-wide acclaim for its innovative initiatives in decentralisation.
