It is observed that the growth of tied fund to health in real term is much lower than the untied one during 14th FC period irrespective of category of states as EAG and Non-EAG. In search of the root of such shrinkage in tied component, it observed that there is a negative growth of central tied transfer to health between 13th to 14th FCs in both EAG and Non-EAG states. A very comprehensive level of analysis using Demand for Grant of several state-budgets since 2010-11 to till date shows that while the growth of tied fund directly devoted to communicable diseases is affirmative (excepting Chhattisgarh), a serous negative growth of expenditure on non-communicable diseases is observed for most of the EAG states and a few Non-EAG states during 14th FC period.Keywords: Intergovernmental transfers; public health; subnational states; federal policy (search for similar items in EconPapers)JEL-codes: H51 H75 H77 I18 (search for similar items in EconPapers)Date: 2016-12-15New Economics Papers: this item is included in nep-hea and nep-pbeReferences: View references in EconPapers View complete reference list from CitEc Citations: View citations in EconPapers (1) Track citations by RSS feedDownloads: (external link) -muenchen.de/79627/1/MPRA_paper_79627.pdf original version (application/pdf)Related works:This item may be available elsewhere in EconPapers: Search for items with the same title.Export reference: BibTeX RIS (EndNote, ProCite, RefMan) HTML/TextPersistent link: :pra:mprapa:79627Access Statistics for this paperMore papers in MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany Ludwigstraße 33, D-80539 Munich, Germany.
