Target to construct 1.95 crore houses under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) from FY20-22, create and upgrade road infrastructure will give tremendous boost to construction and real estate allied sectors. Provisions to bring companies with annual turnover of upto Rs400cr under the ambit of 25% tax bracket, easing of angel tax for start-ups, simplification of labor laws, 2% interest subvention for GST-registered MSME on fresh or incremental loans and decision to create business incubators to create thousands of skilled entrepreneurs are major stops towards encouraging boosting start-up ecosystem in the country.
Overall, this is an inclusive budget with strong focus on enhancing ease of doing business in the country. It has something for everyone and will go a long way in sustainable and inclusive growth of India.”
