  • Looks like a demand oriented budget driven by agri and infra spend, plus overall subsidy point of view
  • Middle class and rural incomes and consumptions should increase based on the multipliers from the Govt spends
  • Notable thrust on the farming sector, which in addition to driving demand, in much needed for food security and nutrition
  • 100 per cent approval of marketing of food products manufactured in India will provide a strong fillip to the food processing industry and increase the incentive for greater agricultural productivity, further improving the economics for farmers
  • Thrust on skill development should not only help make our youth more employable but increase overall productivity in the economy
