There are many positives in this year’s Budget:

·         Sufficient thrust has been given for the sectors across Transport, Infra-structure development including rail road, highways, PMGS program etc.

·         Reduction in the holding period for long term capital gain from 3 years to 2 years and advancing the base year for calculating the indexation for cost of acquisition from 1981 to 2001 is very much welcome and could provide a boost to the real estate sector

·         Significant emphasis on digitalization to bring in transparency and to reduce corruption is a move in the right direction.

·         The Income tax rebate given to promote MSME Sector is also a very good decision.

·         Some steps to incentivize savings and investments could have been provided for.

Post Budget reaction from Mr VP Mahendru, CMD, EON Electric

“The Union Budget 2017-18 has come up with some interesting steps when it comes to the LED lighting industry. With rural development being one of the major focuses for 2017-18, there has been an increased allocation for the rural electrification which will in turn benefit the manufacturing and sale of the electrical appliances. I strongly feel that it is a bold move by the government to put a target of 100 percent electrification of villages by May 2018. The provision for 5 per cent tax exemption for companies whose turnover is less than INR 50cr is also commendable.”

“The budget should have also targeted incentives and concessional interest rates for manufactures of LED Lighting products and projects keeping in mind that LED lighting can play a big role in enabling implementation of our government’s vision of 100 per cent rural electrification, and energy conservation.  Establishment of SEZs (Special Economic Zones) for the LED lighting industry continues to be a critical priority for the industry”

Reaction from Shantanu Prakash, Managing Director, Educomp Solutions Ltd.:

Terming the slew of steps taken to promote online education a testament to Government’s commitment to Digital India Shantanu Prakash, MD, Educomp Solutions Ltd. said, "The allocations made for promotion of education through online means is a substantial initiative and perhaps the greatest emphasis any budget has ever provided and has the potential of creating a tectonic impact in getting more children into the education net."

Prakash lauded the persistent efforts in this budget to empower skill development in all its dimensions and predicted huge dividends on this account. "The continued directional impetus to skill development in all its manifestations shows a well thought out plan and road map for the sector and it can only have a salutary effect on job oriented skill education".

Prakash also lauded the pointed references in the budget to outcomes based accreditation and learning measurements as silent revolutionary steps that could be overhaul quality of institutions.

Expressing disappointment at no reference to private funding in education Prakash said "opening up the education sector to FDi remains the single most potential step to revitalise education in India but the absence of any progress on that front means that  the sector will continue to struggle for capital".
