Experts' viwe on Higher Tax

3: 22 pm

The highlight of the budget is the higher tax on the super rich. From the perspective of resource mobilisation and social justice this cannot be faulted.But it has to be acknowledged that the tax incidence rising to 42 percent on the super rich is very sharp.  The abolition of angel tax and interchangeability of PAN and Aadhar and 'faceless assessment' of tax assessment are positives. The fiscal deficit target of 3.3 percent is unlikely to be achieved. The disinvestment target of 1.05 lakh crores is achievable and has to be strongly pursued. The proposal to raise public stake in listed companies is desirable but will face practical constraints in implementation in the case of some large-cap companies. The crash in bond yields to around 6.66 percent is the direct consequence of the proposal to think about raising sovereign debt from abroad.

Custom duty hike on gold

3: 00 pm

"The proposal to increase the custom duty on gold and precious metals will certainly lift gold prices in the country. Since the domestic prices are already at multi-year highs due to a weak rupee and higher international prices, the new decision would cause an additional burden on buyers.

The existing import duty on gold is 10 percent which is now revised to 12.5 percent. In addition, gold prices attract GST of 3 percent. Hence the present total tax incidence on gold would be about 15.5 percent this will lead to higher prices for gold in the country. 

After the budget proposal, the most active August gold futures in MCX platform increased by more than two percent to Rs 34968 per ten grams. It made an intraday high of Rs 35100. Meanwhile, gold prices in the international market held steady at $1417 an ounce."
