The country has been through two muted years of growth after economic reforms like demonetisation and GST. As we prepare for another Union Budget for FY 19, the economy is expected to recover and be back on track but needs boost for growth. The forthcoming budget is expected to put thrust on areas like agriculture & rural growth, infrastructural development, small businesses and affordable housing. A stimulus for ailing industries is another area which needs attention. Reduction in both direct and indirect tax is also welcome as the base is increasing.
