“It certainly is a transformative budget with key focus on farmers, rural India and the middle class. The focus on infrastructure build with substantial allocation and the continued focus on skilling and empowering through additional allocations is the right thing to do for making the country more productive.
This government clearly understands the power of technology as reflected in the larger flagship initiatives like Digital India. The Digitisation of the government sector, like setting up of Digital Literacy mission which will cover six crore rural households in India ensures transparency and the huge focus on promoting Start-ups’ will only help create more jobs and propel the economy further. The budget could have spelt out more steps to accelerate Digital India.” Anil Valluri, President, NetApp India & SAARC.
