We welcome the Union Budget. The honorable Finance Minister has walked a fine rope of balancing social welfare with economic growth. In the backdrop of two consecutive weak monsoons, the Government’s focus on rural sector especially farmer welfare, education, interest subvention on existing loans and skill development will inject strength in rural economy.
