As soon as the lockdown ended, the Prime Minister announced a poor welfare scheme, which provided free food to 800 million people. 80 million people got free cooking gas. I am grateful to those who have been involved in delivering the service of need to the people. We then brought two more self-contained packages. We gave a total relief of 13 per cent of GDP or Rs 27.18 lakh crore.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman reached the Parliament House after handing over a soft copy of the budget to President Ramnath Kovind. A cabinet meeting was held here in which the budget was approved. This will be Nirmala Sitharaman's third budget. Both the general public and the business world have high hopes for this budget. The reason for hope is his statement given on December 18 last year. He said this time the budget would not have come in the last 100 years. The Economic Survey, tabled in Parliament on February 29, has many indications of this. If the budget is in line with these indications, then such special things can be seen.



Krishnamurthy Subramaniam, chief economic adviser who prepared the economic survey, said the time has come for the government to increase its spending and reduce the tax burden on the people. However, private companies are not in a position to increase costs at present. That is why the government has to increase the expenditure, but the government is short of money for the expenditure. That is why there is little hope of tax relief. Conversely, there is talk of imposing a balance of corona, even if it seems to be on higher-earning companies.

Exemption may increase in the new tax system

Last year, a new system of income tax was introduced, in which there is no exemption other than NPS i.e. National Pension System. That is why very few people chose this option. The government has not released any figures. The finance minister can give a figure on this today.


Taxes on PF, LTC and donations can be waived to make the new system attractive. Corona's effect can also be seen on some ads. For example, the standard deduction limit for job seekers can be increased by Rs 50,000 due to the costs associated with work from home. The tax benefit on health insurance premium under section 80D can also be increased. The investment limit under 80C is Rs 1.5 lakh. The government has also received suggestions to increase it.

Corona can double the cost of healthcare

Expenditure on healthcare is most likely to increase. Corona vaccine is estimated to cost Rs 25,000-30,000 crore. The health budget was Rs 67,484 crore last time. This can be doubled. The National Health Policy 2017 aims to spend 2.5-3% of GDP on healthcare from the Center. But in 2019-20 this could only reach 1.5%. According to World Health Statistics, India ranks 179th out of 189 countries in terms of government spending on health.

The target for agricultural debt could be Rs 19 lakh crore

Particular attention can be paid to farming in view of the peasant movement. The PM farmer scheme currently earns Rs 6,000 per year. Which can be increased by Rs. A target of Rs 19 lakh crore can be set for agricultural loans. Which was Rs 15 lakh crore last year.


Cheap housing can be encouraged to boost demand in the economy. And if nothing else, the government can extend the interest rebate of up to Rs 1.5 lakh for one more year like last year. In other words, in the income tax calculation, the exemption of Rs 2 lakh in interest on home loan was increased to a total of Rs 3.5 lakh.

Scheme may come for migrant laborers

Workers in the unorganized area are more affected by the corona. The International Labor Organization released the Global Wage Report 2020-21 in December. Accordingly, wages in the organized sector have declined by 3.6%, but the earnings of unorganized sector employees have declined by 22.6%. On the other hand, layoffs and other cost cuts have boosted the profits of listed companies by 25%. There may be some announcements in the budget to bring migrant workers under social security.


Import duty may increase for self-reliant India

Import duty on certain items may be increased under the Self-Reliant India Campaign. Last time, duty was also increased on many items, including mobile phones, electronics and electrical parts. Increasing import duty makes imported goods more expensive. This increases the sales of goods made in the country. The rules of GST can be simplified for small traders.

The stock market plunged about 2.5% on budget day last year

On the day of the budget, there are many fluctuations in the stock market. In the last 6 budgets of the Modi government, the market has been at a loss 4 times. One of which was the interim budget. Last year on Budget Day (February 1) the market closed with a decline of 2.43%.
