Union Budget 2012

The Finance Minister presented the Union Budget 2012 on 16 March 2012, in the backdrop of an economic slowdown and weak industrial activity. The FM unfolded a slew of growth-oriented policy measures as well as significant amendments to the income tax law and indirect tax regime. A pragmatic Budget, it aims at equitable growth for all stakeholders. With 6.9% GDP rate in the current year, the budget measures attempt to channelise funds in spurring growth to 7.6% in the coming year, through private sector investments, infrastructure development and enhanced social sector spending.
