The Centre has accommodated all concerns of the state governments on the issue of borrowing to meet deficit in goods and services tax compensation cess fund, minister of state for finance Anurag Thakur has said. Thakur told that the Centre expects states to emulate the leave travel concession (LTC) and festival advance schemes for their employees. He also said the government is open to undertaking more measures to boost the economy. “We have accommodated states’ concerns to the best of our ability and have facilitated states' borrowing (for compensation cess shortfall)," Thakur said, adding that this clearly demonstrated the Center's firm belief in cooperative federalism. Thakur's statement came a day after the centre agreed to borrow Rs. 1.1 lakh crore under the option 1 offered to states and on-lend to them in lieu of compensation cess shortfall.
