Welcome to the Finance Commission
The main goal of the Finance Commission is to ensure the achievement of balanced regional development throughout the country. In this regard, it is pertinent to take appropriate actions to reduce intra-regional disparities with a view to achieving acceptable level of development within the province. Every province should engage in relevant development activities to increase its share of GDP to reduce inter-regional variations among the provinces. Accordingly, the quality of life of people in all provinces should be improved by providing basic needs for the people ensuring at least minimum well-being for all.
