Per capita income of North Eastern States
RAJYA SABHA

RAJYA SABHA

      The Minister of Mines and Minister of Development of North Eastern Region Shri B.K. Handique has said that the per capita income of the North Eastern States has not been on a downward spiral for the last 15 years. The per capita income of the North Eastern States has, in fact, been growing consistently during the last 15 years. However, the growth rate of the national average was higher than the growth rate of the North Eastern States except that of Tripura. In a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today, he said, this has resulted in the per capita income of these States trailing behind the per capita income of the country. The position in this regard is summarized in table 1 given below:

#. Compound annual growth rate for the period 1999-00 to 2007-08.

Note:

1. The State of Mizoram had not compiled NSDP at constant prices prior to 1999-2000.

2. Per capita NSDP and per capita NNP at constant prices are obtained from CSO.  

      Since the Union Budget of 1997-98 all Central Ministries/Departments, excepting few exempted ones, are required to earmark atleast 10% of their annual gross budgetary support towards development of the North Eastern States. 

      The total outlay and expenditure of Central Ministries/Departments in the North Eastern States during the first 2 years of the Eleventh Five-Year Plan is given below: 

Table 2: Outlay and expenditure of Central Ministries/Departments

Note:

1. Outlay figures are based on Expenditure Budget Vol. 2 Demands for Grants for  revelvant years published by Ministry of Finance.

2. Expenditure/Re-appropiration, as reported by Ministries/Departments. 

      While increased expenditure and improvement in the implementation of schemes of Central Ministries/Departments are, no doubt, important for higher income level in the North Eastern States they are not, by themselves, sufficient to ensure faster economic growth of the region. The expenditure of Central Ministries/Departments in the North Eastern Region given in table 1 above comprise just about 40 percent of the annual investment requirements for 11th Plan period to achieve accelerated growth estimated in NER Vision 2020 Document. The expenditure of Central Ministries/Departments alone is not sufficient to ensure higher growth rate unless accompanied by robust private and State sector investments.
