We study the effect of mass outflow on the accretion disc spectrum in presence of heating and cooling processes. Radiation spectrum shows a softening of spectral index in presence of mass outflow. This can explain the state transition of outbursting as well as persistent galactic black hole candidates, in particular when the sources are in hard or intermediate states.
