Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Tuesday is set to seek Rs 16,000 crore as annual plan outlay for 2013-14 from the Centre. The plan size would be fixed at a meeting between Gogoi and Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission Montek Singh Ahluwalia in New Delhi. But the plan panel is likely to hike 10 per cent allocation for the next year. The plan allocation of the state in the last financial year was Rs 10,500 crore and like in the previous years, the State Government failed to utilize the funds. Gogoi is on a three days visit to the capital.
