Budget 2015: MATs use-by date was over on Day 1, abolish it now

The scheme of MAT is immoral as it casts aside the solemn provisions of the income tax law made by Parliament by a peremptory provision that undermines the former. #Economy #P. Chidambaram #Arun Jaitley #Tax #corporate tax #MAT #budget 2015

Why Chidambaram is mostly wrong in opposing Land Acquisition ordinance

Former FM Chidambaram has criticised the NDA's ordinance to amend the Land Acquisition Act of 2013. While the ordinance can certainly be improved while legislating it, it is a darn sight better that the UPA's version of it #UPA #P.

UPA's dud, the Rajiv Gandhi Equity Scheme, is awaiting a quiet burial

There has probably been no greater poorly designed investment scheme than the UPA's Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme. It had no reason to exist, and given the poor response, it probably will die a quiet, unsung death now #Pranab Mukherjee #UPA #P. Chidambaram #Arun Jaitley #Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme

Arun Jaitley should practice the saffron KISS on Union Budget 2015-16

Indian budgets have never innovated much - not in terms of tax proposals, but in terms of the budget-making process itself - since colonial times. Shouldn't Jaitley be changing all that? #P. Chidambaram #Arun Jaitley #Innovation #Budget Speeches #Budget 2015-16 #Accrual-based Accounting

Chidu's fiscal legacy debunked: Jaitley and CEA break free with bold new gameplan

The NDA's Mid-Year Economic Analysis under a new Chief Economic Advisor is unusually bold and clear-headed in what needs to be done. It breaks from Chidambaram's fiscal fundamentalism #P.
