Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) in India are getting grants from the Central Government as well as from the State Governments. These central and state grants are mainly based on the recommendations of Central Finance Commissions (CFCs) and State Finance Commissions (SFCs). This study thus focuses on various devolution packages and system of grants-in-aid suggested by the SFCs and CFCs in the five selected states and ten selected ULBs. These are: Madhya Pradesh (Bhopal and Ujjain); Orissa (Bhubneshwar and Puri); Tamil Nadu (Chennai, Vellore and Alandur); Gujarat (Ahmedabad and Rajkot); and Assam (Guwahati).
