PM Narendra Modi says budget is PEOPLE-FRIENDLY and PROGRESSIVE

During the presentation of the Union’s budget, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed the 2022 Union Budget as “people-friendly” and “progressive”, saying on Tuesday that the budget brings energy and strength to India’s development trajectory, especially at the time when the country is battling the pandemic.

He added  that the country is expected to grow by 9.27% ​​in the coming year. Focusing on four pillars of development – inclusive development, productivity improvement, energy transition and climate action – The Budget gives a blueprint of economy from India at 75 to India at 100, Sitharaman said.

“This budget brings more investment, more growth, more infrastructure and more jobs,” he said.

Announcements from her Budget proposals

Here are top announcements from her Budget proposals so far:
Wider scope of revaluation Further revaluations of income tax returns will be made in the future due to the 2022 budget proposals that have expanded the scope of issuing revaluations.

Last year, the revaluation window was reduced from six years to three years and only asset-related cases could be opened for revaluation for up to 10 years. Budget 2022 says that even if you have declared doubtful expenses, these statements can now be opened up to 10 years from the date of filing.

  • Tax, surcharge non-deductible

The government has clarified that taxes and allowances cannot be claimed as expenses while deductions are required for business and professional income. This puts an end to many long disputes. The provisions of this Article shall apply retroactively from 2005.

  • No fee for delayed returns

There is a penalty of up to Rs 5,000 for securing returns after the due date. Budget 2022 has proposed an amendment to Article 119 to provide for a fee waiver for submission failure within due date.

  • Higher tax deduction at source for non-filers

Last year’s budget had doubled the TDS rate (1-10 per cent) for those who had not made tax returns in the last two years. The 2022 budget has fixed this window. Now, even if you did not file your tax returns last year, then pay a higher TDS.

Indeed, the TDS applies to the bank account and deposit interest, dividends on shares and mutual funds, property sales, rental income, NRI payments and high value sales. It varies between 1 and 20 percent. As part of the 2022 budget, revenue from virtual digital assets or crypto currencies was also subject to 1 percent TDS.

  • Focus on agriculture

The fiscal roadmap presented by Sitharaman will benefit all sectors of the economy, “with a particular focus on agriculture,” the prime minister claimed. The announcement of a “minimum support price of more than Rs 2.25 crore” is intended to benefit farmers as the amount will be “transferred directly to them”, he said.

“Guarantees for loans and many new programs for MSMEs have been announced,” said the Prime Minister. “This budget brings new hope and opportunities for the people. It strengthens the economy; it’s full of “more infrastructures, more investment, more growth and more jobs”. There is also a new supply of green spaces; “The budget provides a bright future for young youth,” he said.

The decision to promote natural agriculture on the banks of the Ganga River, announced in the budget, will not only benefit farmers in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Bihar and West Bengal, but will also help in making “river Ganga chemical-free”, he added.

“For the first time in the country, the Parvat Mala program is being extended to regions such as Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, J&K and the North-East. It will enable a modern transport and connection system in hills. This will provide strength to border villages,” prime minister said.

  • Union Budget focused more on digitization

“This year’s Union Budget focused more on digitization, start-ups and good news for the VC/PE industry. The initiatives announced today by the government will not only boost young entrepreneurs, but also boost to small businesses in the country. The launch of the Digital Rupee using block chain technology just shows that India is on the right path towards adopting technology and this is certainly a positive move.
