Comment on the Union Budget 2017 from Y C Deveshwar, Chairman, ITC Limited
01 Feb 2017

The Budget proposals to increase spends in rural areas, infrastructure development, poverty alleviation as well as the agricultural sector should provide a growth impetus to the Indian economy and a pickup in consumption demand. The enhanced push towards digitisation is indeed welcome as it will ensure a quantum jump in efficiency, enable mainstreaming of the informal economy as well as inclusive empowerment through technology and innovation.
