“Finance Minister has underscored the role of cooperatives and farmer producer organisations (FPOs) in ensuring better prices of the crop.  The Government’s   decision to form 10,000 new Farmer Producer Organisations, will help in ensuring economies of scale for farmers.  The promise to set up livelihood business incubators and technology business incubators for producing skilled entrepreneurs in agro-rural industries will give a boost to the rural entrepreneurship.
 
Government has emphasized on Zero Budget Farming which will help in making farmers self-reliant. The decision to provide one woman in every self-help groups a loan of up to Rs1 lakh under the Mudra Yojana Scheme will encourage more and more women to come forward and participate in the economic process in rural India. The decision to increase the expenditure in rural infrastructure development under PMGSY is another positive move which will help in boosting the rural economy. For the Industry, the decision to bring down the corporate tax for companies with annual turnover of up to Rs400cr to 25% from 30% earlier will help them in a big way.”
