Land Based Fiscal Tools

Strengthening fiscal capabilities of ULBs by devolving additional sources of revenue that are buoyant and elastic to their expenditure needs is important. Using land as a resource the potential of generating additional revenues through land based fiscal tools need to be explored. A study commissioned by the MoUD under its CBUD project has proposed an Urban Infrastructure Benefit  Tax (UIBT) as a beneficial tax for the ULBs. The purpose of the workshop was to have discussions on the final outcome of the study and finalizing a way forward. It was attended by representatives of ULBs, State Governments, research institutions, academic institutions and international donor agencies.
