Suggestions Invited for Union Budget 2017

To encourage JAN BHAGIDARI and to make the procedure of budget formation transparent, the Union Ministry of Finance has decided to invite suggestions for Union Budget 2017-18. As you may recall, this has been a regular feature on MyGov for the last two years.

Citizen from all walks of life are welcome to be a part of the budget making process. You can submit your suggestions either directly in the comments box or attach a PDF document.

We seek your valuable ideas to continue the tradition of the Union Budget incorporating the citizens’ aspirations. The last date for submissions on this forum is 20th January, 2017.

1.Keep the GST Rate 10% for all goods and services.
2.Keep the rate of petrol and diesel is about Rs. 45/ltr and if want to increase the government revenue then try to do advertisement at petrol pump, lease the government petrol pump space to bank, atm and macdonalds, dominos chain and make sure parking space will be available to all customers and it will be ground+3 floors parking or make a comercial complex of 8floors and give tge space at high price.

I am a seafarer and has to spend 6 months away from home and loved ones to ensure the requisite NRE time. Seafarers should be kept in the exemption list as we are the silent economic face of the world (80% of the world trade is done by sea) however the NRE time limit of 182 days should be reduced to 4-5 months considering the downturn in the world economy. there are lots of job losses and its difficult to complete the seatime as less ships/less jobs and more people for the less no. of jobs.

As per government policy home loan interest in decreased in SBI and other. But for the existing customer they charge big amount to change the interest rate, which is not possible for a person who is already having burden of home loan. Can there be any change to it?

Thank you for the opportunity to share our inputs on Budget 2017.
Here are few pointers:

1. Tax exemption should be provided to a minimum of 5 Lakh income slab.
2. 80 c tax exemption should be increased to 3 lakh from 1.5 lakh.
3. 80 d medical tax exemption should be increased to 50k from 15k.
4. Education loan interest rate should be reduced to 4% to 5% especially if students are studying in India.
5. Pensioners should not be taxed.

I may ask you to give some relief in Tax slabs, But 0% interest to farmers is more important than my tax many farmers are in distressed condition. With 0% interest on Crop loans, we may save agriculture sector and farmers in India from suicides.

Sir,This is Narasimha,Working in Officer Cadre at Regional Rural Bank in Andhra Pradesh. Now my request is to announce Interest Free Crop Loans in this budget to all the farmers in India. At present, GOI is providing 5% interest subvention on crop loans to farmers.Now you are required to provide 4% more Additional Interest subvention to farmers. I am advising this after knowing the opinion of farmers at ground level as a Bank Employee.
