Development Expenditures of the States in the Post-Liberalisation Period

The states have witnessed a sharp fall in their shares of development expenditure in gross domestic product in the post-liberalisation period compared to the same in the 1980s, albeit with some recovery in recent years. This article attempts to analyse and explain such a trend against the backdrop of the constraints in the independent fi scal policymaking powers of the states.
