To find materialistic result their is strong need of honest implementation agency with transparent plan to uplifting our former and poor families of society. We have to make arrangement to this with highest support of technology and spreading knowledge in this regards. Rather than providing financial assistance we should give training for making them skilled so as to become independent no dependent on govt. financial aid.

The attitude towards the loaner of the banks is very negative,. still it is considered as a some meagre beggar or who would run with the banks money, where as he is the earner to the bank,he is a asset, where as the depositor is a liability to the banker, but the Banks still consider loan taking person in the negative way. why not bank try to improve the asset of the loanee by advising and timely suggestions

कारपोरेट को दिया गया बैंक कर्ज वापस लेने के लिए सरकार क्या कर रही है। सिर्फ आम आदमी पर ही टैक्स का बोझ लादा जाएगा। पीएफ पर टैक्स लगाना ठीक नहीं। पीएफ तनख्वाह का हिस्सा है और तनख्वाह पर तो हम पहले ही टैक्स देते हैं। फिर ऐसा क्यों...?

Hello Sir, I would begin by congratulating you for a prudent budget. The various moves like bringing the rural economy back to focus, taxing EPF, double tax on coal, etc are all extremely welcoming and much needed. However my concern is with respect to the farmers already in distress. The budget has a proposal for lending to farmers in future, but what about those farmers who are already in debt and thus distressed ?

What are the steps taken to curb corruption? The funds released to Panchayat or likewise, how is govt making sure that the funds are not missused?

Let govt come up with transparent medium that shows the money collect via swatch barath taxation, we also want to know how and where the money is being used.

EPF taxation, or may I call double taxation. How can the govt come up with this taught? On what basis did FM and team come up with this?

Bringing the PF component and its Interest under Income Tax is not a welcome decision by the government. It may be good for developed countries where your Old Age needs are well taken care by the government like caring, medicals, food, shelter and so on. In our country, where still we are not able to make doctors n medical facilities to mass of the people, the PF ideas itself was to provide the financial safety to employees in their old age, post retirement to meet their needs. Pls take it back

I am very much interested in 218% increased in money allotment in rural India. It is going to change life of rural India. Building new Panchayat bhawans to new irrigation project..all are going to be affected thru it.

Dear Sir,

We are very disappointed with the tax on EPF. EPF is the only thing which keeps us going towards our retirement with joy and to lead a respectable life.
What are your thoughts sir.

Dear sir, In budget they did not talk about textile industry especially cotton textiles.Major issues are vast production,less demand,non-licensed dealers for cotton fibre,yarn. Spinining,weaving mills did not maintain proper pay of invoice,huge volatility in yarn prices,excise duty on shirts.
Remedies:1.distribute proper reg license to dealers of cotton yarn, to avoid non-licensed middleman.2.Put less tax on yarn,then only weavers ready to pay INVOICE.3.levy excise duty on yarn supply=demand
