Centre agrees to give special assistance to Mizoram
Aizawl: Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee has agreed to give special plan assistance to the Mizoram government even though the ministry had earlier rejected the proposal of the state government, an official statement said here Monday.
 
The decision was conveyed in person to state Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla during a 40-minute meeting with Mukherjee in New Delhi Sunday, the statement said.
 
Lal Thanhawla also urged the finance minister to allocate more funds to meet the additional expenditure arising out of the implementation of enhanced salaries to the state government employees as per the recommendations of the central sixth pay commission.
 
He also sought more fund to bridge the gap of the assessment of the Thirteenth Finance Commission and the actual requirement of the state government on non-plan shortfalls.
