The Budget of 2021 highlights India’s bold, resilient, and self -reliant approach in its fight against COVID. The Budget will propel India towards the path of a double digit economic recovery in the coming year. This will be a major relief after witnessing one of the worst economic contractions witnessed in 2020.
Despite operating at a fiscal deficit pegged at 9.5% of the GDP in the current year, the government has opted to pursue an aggressive pro-growth policy for the coming year. This is done via increased expenditure in key sectors and enacting key reforms in legislation aimed at boosting investments.
