The FM's speech

My Road map for fiscal consolidation is a fiscal deficit of 3.6% for 2015-16 and 3% for 2016-17. I am conscious of the fact that Iraq crisis is leaving an impact on oil prices and the situation in the middle-east continues to be volatile. In the first Budget of this NDA government that I am presenting before the august House, my aim is to lay down a broad policy indicator of the direction in which we wish to take this country...

Budget Preview 2015-16

The Union Budget 2016 would be a growth enabler, as well as one that adheres to the path of fiscal consolidation. We believe the Finance Minister will be in a position to balance both objectives of spurring growth and fiscal consolidation, by budgeting for higher divestment of holdings in listed companies, telecom and coal auctions to increase revenue and partly curtailing non-Plan expenditure. ...

Janta Expectation

  • Life for senior citizens is getting increasingly miserable. Our retirement funds lose all meaning given the high cost of living and the current tax rebates and exemptions.
  • Dear FM, please give housing related deductions a closer look. Please increase the limit for interest payments and provide exclusive deduction for principal amounts.
  • The government claims that inflation has come down but almost every purchase barring a few food items hurts our pockets. We want the budget to encourage savings for which it must make section 80 C broad and more accommodating.
  • The government should give a detailed account of the projects unveiled and funds deployed in the last year’s budget. Every year, we hear of a new Yojna but have no clue how far it has progressed in the real sense.
  • Tech start-ups deserve more incentives from the government. On one end, you expect them to fuel the India Growth story and on the other, you leave them crippled with harsh laws that don’t put a premium on innovation.

Janta Reaction

  • no new trains huge disappointment.
  • how will the fund come in for the railway budget ideas that needs to be executed
  • rail ministers have not revealed any detAILS REGARDING THE FUNDS
  • this budget focuses a lot on the passenger lot
  • to have coaches were the handicap people and making wheel chairs available to them is the best idea it will be a great help
