“I feel the budget announced on 29th Feb is in the right direction and will benefit overall economy in long run. While there has been focus on providing infrastructure to rural areas in India there also has been focus on expanding the reach for internet connectivity. As the impetus is to Make in India I feel there should have been more support by giving exemptions from BCD, CVD and SAD while importing parts, components and accessories required for manufacturing of IT Hardware such as desktop PC and notebook PC.
We are satisfied to a certain extent with this budget, but our expectation was with respect to passage of GST bill which did not happen. And while the idea to work towards a Digital India the budget could have spelt out more steps for the same.”
