The thrust on social infrastructure, ease of living, and technology led governance for inclusive, equitable growth is a welcome move. India would continue to need more structural, policy and economic reforms to become a USD 5 trillion economy in the next five years. There is a considerable ground to be covered and this Budget has set the tone for future discourse.

As expected, there is populism in the Budget, but with the fiscal deficit stated to be contained at 3.4%, prudence has prevailed. Along with new schemes like PM Kisan Samman Nidhi and PM Shramyogi Maandhan Yojana that have the greater good intent, the tax sops given to the middle class and salaried employees makes it a friendly budget. The vision to create a tech enabled taxpayer friendly tax department is a welcome initiative.
