The Indian Economy in recent past, especially after 1980՚s has undergone many kinds of changes. Accordingly, a new pattern of fiscal federalism has emerged in order to meet the new situations/conditions resulting out of the economic transformations. The Finance Commission, as an instrument for distribution of financial resources between the federal constituents, dealt with the economic imbalances resulting out of economic changes.
