13th Finance Commission

Vijay Kelkar will head the 13th Finance Commission, and Business Standard has an interesting edit framing the issues that 13FC faces. You might like to see Kelkar's FRBM Implementation Task Force report, and this feature on him in Economic Times. In a timely piece in Economic Times, Amaresh Bagchi and Satya Poddar argue in favour of a lower GST rate than that proposed in the FRBM Task Force report.

  1. Hi Ajay, Nice blog, I came looking for info on the working of the 13th Finance Commission. The finmin site is in pretty bad shape and I wrote a mail to Dr. Kelkar mentioning an overhaul. He replied positive. Also the business standard link doesnt work in your post. Cheers, Rishi
