My expectations from the Budget
What are the expectations of the common man from the 2018 India Budget? Expectations of the public are revealed in this forum thread.
The Government is going to table the Budget tomorrow. As a common man who doesn't possess much knowledge about economics and fiscal matter, I don't understand the nitty-gritty of budget. However, I have some expectations from the Budget. I am listing my expectations below:-
(a) I have been paying a huge amount of income tax because presently I don't have any loan. The Government must rationalize the income tax structure keeping in view the hopes and aspirations of middle-class.
(b) The Government must cut down the service tax to some extent. It pinches a lot.
(c) The Government must increase the budget allocation for Defence. This is necessary for the safety and security of the country.
(d) The Government should drastically cut down subsidies except on education and health.
(e) The Government should give more impetus on ''Make in India'' and similar schemes which are helpful for employment generation.
(f) Serious steps must be taken to improve the railway service and safety aspects. There is no need to increase the number of trains in the busiest routes.
Members may kindly indicate their expectations from the Budget.
