Q. Do you know the main features of the budget that was presented recently?

So the budget has tried to increase the number of people who are taxable while trying to reduce the amount of tax. Additionally they have imposed taxes on luxury expenditures while trying to bring reduction in cost of basic goods. And a lot of welfare schemes have been announced to help the weakest and poorest sections of society and help improve their living conditions.
Q. What would you focus on if you were finance minister?
If I were the finance minister I would aim for only 2 things – increase jobs and decrease inflation. It is important to provide livelihood for our young population and engage them in productive roles. And then it is important for inflation to be controlled and reduced so that the spending power of all citizens can go up and wealth can be distributed.
Q. Do you think this is a good budget?
Budgets should be judged at the end of the year and not the beginning. This budget has many bright steps and everyone hopes that they will bring positive change.
