Big picture – It is a budget that balances growth with fiscal prudence. A number of CII recommendations find their place in the budget from the public capex increase to Rs 10 lakh crore, whether it is rationalizing of personal income taxes of the lower level. We are seeing significant focus in agri productivity and efficiency, actions on the green energy industry and are opportunities there as well. Overall, I would say Budget is very good and at the same time sticking to the fiscal deficit target of 6.4% this year. This is a welcome balance that we are seeing

As expected, the budget is heavy on Capex (at Rs 10 lakh crore, increase of 37% from FY23 revised estimates) which is needed to ensure the cyclical recovery continues. Infra (railways Rs 2.4 lakh crore, 50 new airports and clean energy Rs 35,000 crore) along with the Agri push will help the rural economy improve by boosting employment and incomes.
Allocation to affordable housing of Rs 79,000 crore, increase of 66%, will also help the housing market retain momentum. Incentives for local production in form of lower duties will also be helpful.
Overall, this budget push on capex will ensure that the private capex greenshoots really sustain, help inclusive growth and make the economy become more resilient in light of the global slowdown.
Both Equity and Bond markets have reacted positively to the budget, as the thrust to maintain the cyclical recovery and largely maintain fiscal prudence has helped lift sentiments.
