Budget 2008-09: The 10 that matter

(Feb 29, 2008)

Not willing to disappoint any section of the voting class, the Union Budget speech delivered by Finance Minister P. Chidambaram today was calibrated to satisfy almost all segments of the population. From aggressively raising the cause of farmers to supporting higher education to offering medical benefits to sops for women and senior citizens, the Budget almost sounded perfectly rounded. The enhanced income tax exemption limits were the icing on the cake. However, what left us disappointed was the fact that Budget ignored the necessary reform measures, especially in the PSU sector that would have set the ball rolling for economic growth in the coming fiscal as well. Here are the 10 key measures that we believe are the lead points of the Budget announced today.

FM, the Farmer's Messiah

(Feb 29, 2008)

We, together with a lot of other observers indeed guessed it right! This budget, the last before the next general elections, was supposed to be nothing but a way to appease the voters. It turned out exactly that way. There were a whole lot of dole outs and grants for social sectors (and deservedly so) but the scale of the same with no real announcement of a major revenue collection exercise really caught us by surprise. The finance minister, P. Chidambaram also pricked some nerves by not reducing the corporate tax rate and the surcharge thereon. Rather, he increased the short-term capital gains tax from 10% to 15%. The stocks markets took note of the same with the Sensex and Nifty closing the day with big losses.

Budget: Lost in translation?

(Feb 29, 2008)

If you are an investor, you’ll probably find it difficult to put a label on this budget. It’s not like the Finance Minister (FM) chose to maintain status-quo or did not introduce any ‘cheer-worthy’ measures. Sure he did, but those actions are few and not major (barring the move to hike the Income Tax exemption limit) ones. Perhaps it’s the result of the political considerations or maybe it’s just the strain of balancing ‘reforms and relief’.
