Bud­get is a Mixed Bag

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Fi­nance min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley’s Bud­get is a mixed bag. It comes as a dis­ap­point­ment to the salaried and pen­sion class, given that a 5% cut in tax rate is mar­ginal and would do lit­tle to ease the fi­nan­cial bur­den of the less-af­flu­ent. How­ever, the move to fa­cil­i­tate higher in­vest­ment in af­ford­able hous­ing is wel­come. Ditto for the pro­pos­als to boost in­fra­struc­ture and pro­mote dig­i­tal trans­ac­tions, and bring about trans­parency in gover­nance.
