Budget 2015: Chidu is wrong to claim corporates are main gainers

Budget 2015-16 is good for corporates not by being too generous to them, but by bringing policy clarity and continuing on the path of making business easier to do. P Chidambaram is wrong to claim corporates are major gainers from tax cuts. #Arun Jaitley #budget 2015 #Corporate Tax Cut #Economy #P. Chidambaram #Revenue Foregone #Surcharge on IT

Arun Jaitley has redeemed himself with his second budget, after the failure of the first one to set the Yamuna on fire. This one sticks to the path of "creative incrementalism" and should deliver results over the medium term #Arun Jaitley #Arun Jaitley Speech #bankruptcy code #budget 2015 #Budget 2015 Highlights #Economy #EPFO #GST #Indian Union Budget #InMyOpinion #RBI #Reforms #Union Budget #Union Budget 2015 #Union Budget 2015 Speech #Union Budget 2015-16 #Union Budget Highlights #Union Budget Speech

Roundup: Arun Jaitley does not disappoint. Union Budget 2015 is reformist

Budget 2015 has 10 challenges; Jaitley cannot afford to screw up this time

If Arun Jaitley's 2014-15 budget was eminently forgettable, Budget 2015-16 is his opportunity to correct that impression. If he meets the 10 big challenges he faces head-on, this budget will be as important as the one in 1991 #Arun Jaitley #Budget 2015-16 #Budget2015 #Economy Budget 2015 #fiscal deficit #Key Proposals #NDA Budget #Public Investment #Reforms

Economic Survey 2014-15 sees no need for ‘big bang’ reforms to get 10 percent growth

The Economic Survey tabled in parliament is more optimistic in tone than others in the recent past. It sees "creative incrementalism" as the route to reforms and raising GDP growth to double-digits. One-shot big bang reform is not needed #Budget2015 #Direct Benefits Transfer #double digit growth #Economic Surbey #economic survey 2014-15 #GDP Growth CEA Arvind Subramanian #Jan Dhan Yojana #Subsidies

Biting the bullet: Why Prabhu (and his boss) shouldn’t chase the bullet train

Bullet trains are a bad idea when faster trains on existing tracks are an obvious and viable alternative. While it is true that the Modi promised bullet trains before the elections, good sense needs it to abandon this costly extravaganza #Bullet Train #High-Speed Train Sets #Narendra Modi #Railway Budget 2015 #Suresh Prabhu
