Team Storytap 2017-02-01



This year’s budget will be the honourable Union Minister, Arun Jaitley’s third one. This budget is different than the previous ones. This is because it is scheduled a month in advance and the railway budget is consolidated in the General Budget. Here are the key expectations from budget 2017.

1. Promotion Of Cashless Transactions

With the demonetization drive dominating the climax of last year, it wouldn’t be wrong to look forward to what measures the Government is taking to encourage payments through credit/debit cards or on using the payment bank services or any other cashless mode.

2. Accessible Housing

Last year’s budget already offered home loans at a cheaper price and low cost housing. It would be great to see additional tax breaks in these measures.

3. Updating The Income Tax Structure

There have been talks about the Government increasing the minimum taxable income from Rs. 2.5 lakhs per annum to Rs. 4 lakhs per annum for easing the pain caused by demonetisation. Let’s see if this is put into practice.

4. Raising The Taxes On Luxury Goods, Tobacco, Imports And Alcohol

These have been the persisting source of revenue for the Government. Increasing the prices of these things would definitely be beneficial.

5. Expanding Ventures In Railways

The modernization of railways has been pending since long. Hopefully, some active plans will be put into practice this time around but, don’t expect the fares of the AC compartments to decrease.

6. Considerations For Uplifting The Agriculture Sector

Extra benefits can be given to the farmers for purchasing fertilizers, seeds and other essential goods for agriculture as they don’t have easy access to the cashless transactions.

This is a move to curb the many lifestyle diseases prevalent today. The revenue that will be collected will be used in the formulation of many health schemes by the Government.
