An honest non influential Union Budget 2024- FICCI.

“The union budget which was passed as interim on 1st of February was very clear and focussed towards vikshit bharat. It maintains a clear balance between current investment and fiscal discipline” says Sri. V.V.Sampath Kumar (Treasurer and Chairman, Indirect Taxation Committee) in a media gathering at Andhra Chamber of Commerce, Chennai-17, on 2nd February. The main agenda of the meeting is to have an analysis on direct and indirect taxes and a panel discussion on economic and sector wise outlook.

Shri. Sunil Mathur Principal Chief Commissioner of Income tax says “in last ten years direct tax collection was increased 3 folds mainly because of personal taxes. Almost 2.4 times more number of people has filed IT returns which currently stands at 19% of the total direct tax collection. Based on this the expectation of direct tax would be Rs.18.2 lakh crore which would curb the fiscal deficit of the government”

“The framework of the budget was very clear and the concepts were falling in place. There were only few changes in GST and Indirect taxes and our finance minister has explained the transformative aspects of GST and optimisation of supply chain while announcing the budget which was quite impressive. The new budget has made it compulsory for registration of input service providers redefined its operating portion of law” cherishingly says Dr. J.M. Kennedy, IRS, Principle Commissioner, Central GST and Central Excise, Chennai.
