The Centre has released two instalments of devolution to the states amounting to Rs 95,082 crore in November, the Finance Ministry said on Tuesday.

After a meeting with all chief ministers and state finance ministers recently, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had said the Centre will double the amount of November devolution by including one advance instalment to help states push their capital expenditure.

Currently, 41 per cent of the tax collected is devolved in 14 instalments among states during a fiscal.

The increased amount of devolution in November is an advance release, and final adjustments will be made in March 2022.

"Rs 95,082 crore of Tax devolution to strengthen fiscal space of States," the statement added.
