Indian Economy Gaining Momentum

This refers to your cover-package article on pre-Budget, The Job at Hand (March 1). It has been well analysed. This is really a goldilocks moment for India, as its economy is neither too hot nor too cold. The "Make in India" programme is gradually gaining momentum. However, as RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan says, instead of Make in India, we must look into our regional and domestic demand for our growth. Also, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's view on subsidies is quite appreciable. In the recent past, the government has eased the FDI regime. This will give a leg-up to the economy and create more jobs. Still, the economy faces a number of challenges such as rising bad loans of banks and tepid industrial growth. Hope the BJP's first full-year Budget will try to solve these and many other problems the country is facing. - Abhinav P., New Delhi

Taxpayers' Dream

This refers to your cover-package article on panel discussion, What Mr. Jaitley Should Do (March 1). Regarding the income-tax Act, there should be statutorily a fixed time limit for the assessment orders and refunds must be issued within three months of date from filing of the I-T returns. All educational institutions must be totally exempted from the income-tax bracket. The limit under section 80 L for savings bank interest must be raised from Rs 10,000 to Rs 50,000. - Mahesh Kapasi, New Delhi

Nice Write-up

This refers to your story on economy, Cut to the Chase (February 15). The write-up is very nice. I agree that while we can take pride in the fact that the economy is growing at a faster clip, we have to acknowledge the reality that it is on a much smaller base and we have a long way to catch up in absolute terms.But multiple actions on the policy front may spur us to leverage the demographic dividend and the opportunities that present themselves. We have to do that to provide the window to the millions of youth who would be joining the workforce as we go forward. - Ashok Reddy, On e-mail

Customer Experience

This refers to your story on Kalyan Jewellers (A Glittering Success, February 1). It is a great story. True, the company has grown exponentially in the recent past. But I would like to share about my recent customer experience. The old ornaments to new ornaments service charges (melting loss, buying rate of old gold, and making charges for new ornament) of Kalyan Jewellers run above 25 per cent of the overall cost of new ornament, which is probably most expensive. In a very short time, Kalyan Jewellers has been valued high in the market. But as valued customers, we also have the final choice to choose and buy the brand product. - G. Udayabhaskar, Mumbai
