Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday welcomed the Centre's in toto acceptance of the 14th finance commission recommendations.

Thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the chief minister said the acceptance of recommendation of transfer of 42% of divisible pool to the states including taxes, grants etc was in the "true spirit of cooperative federalism".

He also welcomed the decision to give up the distinction between plan and non-plan allocations.

Khattar further said the Union government's decision to significantly increase the states' share would enable them to utilise the enhanced resources according to the needs of their people.
