The Union Budget 2023-24 put forth several proposals for the benefit of taxpayers which came as a huge relief to the middle-class, salaried people of India. Although people have been rejoicing over the decision, many are yet to navigate their way through the new regime.
The Union Budget 2023-24 included various suggestions for the benefit of taxpayers, which came as a big relief to India’s middle-class and salaried citizens. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman delivered the budget for the fiscal year beginning April 1, 2023 on February 1, with one of the big takeaways being the introduction of streamlined tax brackets and tax rebate increases.
The simplified tax slabs, on the other hand, belong under the new tax system, which the FM claims was purposefully structured that way so that more and more people choose it. Although many individuals have expressed their joy at the decision, many have yet to navigate the new administration. And, because it will be the default tax system, one must plan ahead of time. This budget also prioritised capital spending, fiscal consolidation, and green growth.
The capital investment outlay has been boosted by 33% to Rs 10 lakh crore, accounting for 3.3% of GDP, according to the FM’s budget address. She also stated that the administration is still committed to reducing the fiscal deficit to 4.5 percent of GDP by 2025-26. The Budget also emphasised seven goals, dubbed the “Saptrishis leading us through Amrit Kaal” by Sitharaman.
