Gogoi for uninterrupted Central aid

Dispur pins hopes on uninterrupted financial assistance from the Centre without any change in the system of the pattern.

In his letter to Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi urged to continue with the Prime Minister to continue the funding pattern as earlier approved under the Special Plan Assistance (SPA), Untied Special Central Assistance (USCA) and Additional Central Assistance (ACA).

In a letter to the Prime Minister sent yesterday, Gogoi said, "Special category states like Assam were earlier getting SPA, USCA and ACA on a 90:10 basis. "The funding pattern of Centrally Sponsored Schemes should not be altered to our disadvantage. It is imperative that Assam and other north eastern states continue to retain their Special Category status along with the earlier approved pattern of fund allocations under SPA, Untied SCA and ACA", Gogoi told Modi.
