The recently announced Indian budget (2018) has a mixed reception among the public. Women would have new benefits, related to their savings, loans to start self-initiatives/startups, marginally better pay and mother-friendly workplaces. Senior citizens would have new options to save more by an increased margin of tax deduction claims.
Perhaps the most talked about is the mega healthcare plan for crores of people who are underprivileged. A better tax bracket for the middle class and a hike for the upper class would have been well received but didn't happen.
