How Statutory Grants are different from Discretionary Grants ?
Laxmikant saysStatutory Grants- "Article 275 empowers the Parliament to make grants to the states which are in
need of financial assistance and not to every state. Also, different sums may be fixed for different
states. These sums are charged on the Consolidated Fund of India every year."
My doubt is while distributing Statutory Grants the Union Govt has discretion of granting different amount of funds to different entities isn't it same as discretionary grant ?
I agree that Statutory Grants are only allocated to those states that are financially in mess but is it the only difference ?@IWRA @DrKingSchultz @Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh
