Haryana has topped the chart of the states that have significantly exceeded revenue mobilisation target during the 11th Five Year Plan (2007-12). The Planning Commission’s report on state finances stated Haryana mopped up Rs. 64,123 crore in the five year policy period, which was 192.1% of the targetted 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% 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.

It appears that states felt the heat of global slowdown and states like Gujarat, Maharashtra, Delhi, Punjab could not achieve the target. About 8 states including Haryana, Assam, Odisha, Karnataka, Goa, Bihar and Arunachal Pradesh could mop up more than their targets.
