Budget 2017: Affordable housing and MSMEs get much-needed fillip

The Union budget is getting to be hailed for a bunch of measures announced to provide a much-needed boost to the affordable housing and the MSME (Micro Small and Medium Enterprises) sectors and from that perspective advancing the government's financial inclusion agenda.

Some voices from the government sought to assuage the feelings of the middle class on Monday when they said taxation on EPF withdrawal would not be in retrospect.
The industry that was expecting some incentives like fleet modernisation to spur demand, though, remains a disappointed lot.
