Stimulus and reforms don’t go together: Jaitley should have kept his fiscal deficit promise

Stimulus and reforms don't go together. Let's see if Jaitley and the Modi government are able to prove that wrong. Only time will tell. But with 282 members in the Lok Sabha, Jaitley should have kept his promise to bring down the fiscal deficit on 28/2. #Arun Jaitley #Budget #Budget2015 #Economy Budget 2015 #fiscal deficit #Union Budget 2015

Jaitley’s tax gimmick: Budget 2015 gives tax benefit of only Rs 52,221, not Rs 4.44 lakh

The finance minister Arun Jaitley during the course of his budget speech today remarked: “After taking into account the tax concession given to middle class tax payers in my last Budget and this Budget, today an individual tax payer will get tax benefit of Rs 4,44,200.” #Budget2015 #Common Man Budget #Common Man Budget 2015 #Data Budget 2015 #NPS #Union Budget 2015

Budget 2015: Why cut corporate tax but not personal tax, Mr Jaitley?

Around 3% of Indians pay income tax. If more corporates are likely to pay more tax at lower rates, can't the same assumption be made for individual tax payers as well? Further, like the corporates income tax laws, can't the personal income tax laws simplified as well? #Arun Jaitley #Arun Jaitley Speech #Budget #Budget2015 #Common Man Budget 2015 #Income tax #Personal Finance Budget 2015 #personal taxes #Union Budget 2015

10 things Modi Sarkar should do in Budget 2015

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will be presenting Narendra Modi government's second budget next month in February 2015. The budget other than being a revenue and expenditure statement of the government is also the time when governments tend to announce their policy stance on various issues. It is also the time around which major economic reforms tend to be announced. #Arun Jaitley #budget 2015 #Budget2015 #Economy Budget 2015 #fiscal deficit #Narendra Modi #Union Budget 2015

Express your ‘mann ki baat’ Modiji: BJP needs to go all out on land acquisition act debate

No government in this country has ever made an effort to explain economic reform to people. Economic reform has always happened by stealth. This is something that needs to stop. #BJP #Defence #Haryana #Land Acquisition Act #Madhya Pradesh #Rajya Sabha

Economic survey: Are stalled projects at Rs 8.8 lakh cr or Rs 18 lakh cr?

There is not much hope for the private sector. What has not helped the private sector is the fact that it is terribly over-leveraged (i.e. it has taken on a massive amount of debt in comparison to the equity that it has) #budget 2015 #Budget2015 #EconomicSurvey #EconomicSurvey2015

Coal auction: Seven reasons why Vinod Rai was right about Coalgate

Indian businesses have for too long been used to getting things for free, including coal. This has led to the misconception that thermal power is cheap, which is not. Once, the right price of coal is taken into account, other forms of generating electricity might start to look viable. And that will be good for the environment. #CAG #coal #Coal auction #NDA #PC Parakh #UPA #Vinod Rai

Budget 2015: Why Jaitley shouldn’t increase public spending until fiscal deficit is in control

The mainstream view now seems to be getting around to the idea that the government should forget about the fiscal deficit, during the next financial year and spend more money, in the hope of creating more economic growth. #Arun Jaitley #budget 2015 #Budget2015 #ConnectTheDots #Economy #Finance Budget 2015 #fiscal deficit #GDP #India
