According to Planning Commission's latest report on state finances, Haryana mopped up Rs. 64,123 crore during the five year policy period which was 192.1 per cent of the targeted resource mobilisation of Rs. 33,374 crore in the 11th Plan.

The report indicates that majority of states have failed to meet the projected planned resources as collectively they could fetch only 92.5 per cent of target.

Planning Commission has projected that all states would collectively garner Rs. 14,12,029 crore in 11th Plan but they could manage Rs. 13,06,296 crore, which was 92.5 per cent of the targeted projection.

It appears that states felt the heat of global slowdown and the states like Gujarat, Maharashtra, Delhi, Punjab could not achieve the projected target.

About eight states in the country including Haryana, Assam, Odisha, Karnataka, Goa, Bihar and Arunachal Pradesh could mop up more than their targets.

Gujarat and Punjab could garner only 95.6 per cent and 87.5 per cent of the projected targets respectively in 11th Plan. Uttrakhand could get only 52.5 per cent, which is lowest.

Delhi was given a target to mobilise Rs. 54,799 crore, but it could manage Rs. 45,250 crore.

Gujarat was to mop up Rs. 1,06,918 crore but it could manage Rs. 1,02,226 crore.

The other North Indian states including Punjab, Jammu & Kashmir and, Himachal Pradesh managed to mobilise Rs. 25,298 crore, Rs. 21,593 crore and Rs. 10,844 crore. The resource realisation by the three states was also lower than their targets.
