Delhi CM also discussed the financial issues pertaining to Delhi with the Union Finance Minister. ‘Met Union Finance Minister Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman. Congratulated her for assuming charge of such an important Ministry. Assured her of full cooperation from Delhi govt and stressed the need for Delhi govt and Centre to work together for improving Delhi’, said Arvind Kejriwal after meeting Sitharaman.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also apprised the Finance Minister that Delhi contributes over 1.5 Lakh crore as an Income Tax towards the Centre. However, it only gets 325 crores as its share in central taxes, which too has been frozen since last two decades.

He also said that the more investment from the Centre in Delhi will boom the economy. Delhiites will provide more Income Tax in return. Both Kejriwal and Sisodia also urged Sitharaman to provide funds for municipal corporations. They added the Centre provide funds to all the states for their civic bodies but Delhi has been deprived of it and the municipal corporation in Delhi is not getting any financial help from the Central government.

Both Kejriwal and Sisodia assured full cooperation from Delhi Government and sought Centre’s cooperation for the development of the national capital.
