Modi government’s first two budgets - one in 2014, just months after he took office, followed by a full budget in 2015 have failed to excite economic commentators hoping for a bold new wave of reforms.

India has sustained over 7 per cent growth in 2015-16, earning the economy the tag of being one of the world’s fastest growing large economies. However, predictions of weak global growth, the slowdown of the Chinese economy and the continued uncertainty in global crude oil prices, have put an additional burden on the Indian economy. Amidst this backdrop, Mr. Jaitely presented Finance Bill, 2016, as part of the Union Budget 2016-17, to Parliament on 29 February, 2016 and it was not a disappointment for the nation. Hon’ble finance minister substantiated on last year’s announcement of phased reductions in the corporate tax rate over the next few years and a structured plan to phase-out the exemptions. Further various measures to move towards a litigation free environment will build the tax payers’ confidence to a great level. The proposals were complimented by important incremental steps towards ensuring the success of the ‘Make in India’ and other flagship campaigns such as ‘Startup India’ by introducing specific benefits for such entities. The Budget Analysis summarizes the significant Direct Tax amendments proposed by Hon’ble Finance Minister.
