How much Fund India Gives to UN?

As each member state is obligated to contribute to the UN based on the country’s share of the global Gross National Income with discounts given for low per-capita income and the country’s external debt.

The contribution in respect of UN peacekeeping operations is also based on this scale of assessments with adjustments made for average per capita Gross National Income vis-a-vis global average Gross National Income, which is reviewed after every three years.

Based on this scale, India’s contribution to the UN regular budget was fixed at 0.534% from 2009-12 and 0.666% from 2013-2015. India’s contribution to UN peacekeeping operations was fixed at 0.1068% for the period 2009-12 and at 0.1332% for the period 2013-15, said Minister of State for the external Affairs V. K. Singh in reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
