Union Budget 2017

Jaitley presents 'Uttam Budget'

Jaitley breaks away from tradition and after a period of 92 years Union Budget and Railway budget presented as a combined document on an advanced date than the commonly followed schedule.
In a major step, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley announced the reduction of the existing rate of taxation for individuals with income ranging between Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 5 lakh to 5% instead of 10%. This means that everyone under the tax bracket of Rs 50 lakh stand to gain Rs 12,500 tax benefit in the coming year. There will be a surcharge of 10% for those whose annual income is Rs 50 lakh to Rs 1 crore. Additionally, the 15% surcharge on Rs 1 crore or more remains unchanged. This is to make up for Rs 15,000 crore loss due to the cut in the personal income tax rate.

Re: Union Budget 2017

I hope the tax reduction and surcharges balance out. no point in relying on excess tax collected because of demonitisation drive...

Having broken the middlemen-Defence Ministry nexus, and with better utilization, no policy paralysis, and no corruption, it's like a 20-30% hike.

Re: Union Budget 2017

Besides, 'make in India' further reduces the cost of equipment.
------This also makes us self sufficient, unlike the way a vindictive Bofors had us by thye short hairs by refusing us ammo during the Kargil war!
