The current budget is not satisfactory and fails to address some important issues such as black money, corruption, fiscal deficits, improper investments etc.”this was transpired byDr. Ganesh Kawadia, an eminent economist during the session on “Analysis of Union Budget 2012-13”.
On the contrary Mr.ShashankAgrawal, renowned Industrialist, also present during the session, said, the present budget is satisfactory. He further said that, the figures have to be appreciated because India is a developing country. Thus, the government is trying to balance and bring down fiscal deficit.
CA TribhuvanSachdeva focused on direct taxes issues in budget 2012-2013. He said the tax collection policy of India is working on a lower scale. He stated that government should emphasize on increasing tax payers rather than increasing tax rates.
