Budget Expectation 2013-14: Tata Communications

India Infoline News Service | Mumbai | February 27, 2013 09:49 IST

The government is likely to be focused on containing fiscal deficit and we expect a measured, pro-people and growth oriented budget.

“The recent reform measures have rekindled business confidence. The government is likely to be focused on containing fiscal deficit and we expect a measured, pro-people and growth oriented budget.

 

Specifically talking about the telecom sector, some of the key expectations will include: 

  • Infrastructure status has been a long pending demand of the telecom sector. An infrastructure status will not only give it tax exemption but will also make it easier to borrow for telecom companies
  • The government should also look at the importance of providing connectivity to the remotest parts of the country. Given the low rural teledensity and widening urban-rural penetration gap, budget should incentivise provision of telecom services in rural areas
  • Rationalisation of Taxes and uniform tax structure.

Some of these will enable the telecom sector to continue to contribute in a major way to the dynamism of our economy.”

Another day, another high

The outlook is a flat start. The market will look to scale to new peaks though not much effort is needed for the same. HUL saw a rally and short-covering may have pulled it up further. Speculation is on that its parent will raise stake through an open offer. After the cooling in oil prices, Cairn results will be in focus.
