According to media reports, since the share of cesses and surcharges in the
Centre's gross tax revenue has nearly doubled to 19.9% in FY21 from 10.4%

and lower tax devolution to the states. The Centre's cesses and surcharges
are not included in the current Finance Commission (FC) system for tax
devolution. And, as a result of the significant rise, the FC has suggested a
higher grant-in-aid to the states to compensate for the low growth in tax
devolution, which was pegged at 41% during the 15th FC award's service.

overnight. While Hang Seng rose 0.70%, Nikkei fell 0.13% (as at 8 a.m. IST).
