3rd State Finance Commission submits report to Government

The state government has established the 3rd State Finance Commission after almost 12 years since the previous commission, which ended in 2010 headed by Alban Couto an IAS officer.

The final detailed report was presented to the government earlier this year by the commission. While speaking at the event Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant said that his government is dedicated and committed towards boosting and strengthening the rural and urban local bodies by implementing the various recommendations submitted by the commission. He also believes that these recommendations will enhance the quality and efficiency through which services are distributed within the state.

The commission was established in 2022 and the report submitted by it to Governor P S Sreedharan Pillai earlier this year provides guidance and advice on matters regarding the distribution of taxes, tolls and fees amongst the state and local bodies. It also outlines a five-year plan that must be implemented from the year 2024 to 2029.

It consists of three members and was chaired by D A Hawaldar who was a former bureaucrat. The report focused on both financial and non-financial aspects in regards to matters such as village panchayats, municipal councils and Zilla Panchayats (ZPs) for the years 2024-29.
