Performance Grants recommended by the Fourteenth Finance Commission

FC-XIV has recommended grants in two parts; a basic grant, and a performance grant, for duly constituted Gram Panchayats and municipalities. The ratio of basic to performance grant is 90:10 with respect to Panchayats and 80:20 with respect to Municipalities.

Incentives to Panchayats

Incentives have been given to the best performing Panchayats under the Panchayat Empowerment and Accountability Incentive Scheme (PEAIS) since 2011-12. From 2013-14, PEAIS has been subsumed in the Central Component i.e. National Plan for Technical Assistance (NTPA) of Rajiv Gandhi Panchayat Sashaktikaran Abhiyan (RGPSA). The year-wise incentives given to Panchayats in various States from 2011-12 to 2014-15 are:




Grand Total of incentives




Rs. 19.16 crores




Rs. 28.85 crores




Rs. 37.82 crores




Rs. 27.53 crores

Vaada Raha Note: As one can observe, the grand total of incentives was on a downward trend till 2015; further data is not readily available but a request to access the same has already been put in and this promise will be updated as and when there is more information.
