Taking The Economy Forward

The Union Budget 2018-19 is unique in many respects. It comes at a time when the economy is now witnessing the positive effects of two major structural reforms carried out by the Government in the last two years-demonetization and implementation of GST. At a time when all the indicators of economic activity re showing an upswing, this budgets tends to build on that and create a conducive economic climate for India to grow at 8 per cent per annum in the coming years.

This budget is different from other budgets in several respects. The main focus of the budget is on spending more money on agriculture and rural economy so that apart from helping the farmers in increase their income, it results into creation of demand for goods and services which will promote private investment. In the budget, maximum money is going to be spent on creation of rural infrastructure and rural employment. There is an increase in the budgets allocation for rural livelihood programmes under which self-help groups, mainly of women, are being helped by corpus funds as well as bank credit. In order to take care of unevenness in the prices of three major vegetable crops of tomato, onion, potato (TOP), a new scheme called ‘Operation Greens’ has been announced which will work on the pattern of Operation Flood which worked very well for the milk sector. Under the scheme of Operation Greens' for which Rs. 500 crore has been set apart initially, the production and consumption centers will be linked properly and necessary logistics support will be created for movement of these products. Also wherever required, new warehousing and processing capacities for these crops will be created with the help of a network of Farmers Producer Organizations (FPO). Incidentally, in this budget, it is also announced that such farmer producer companies with a turn-over upto Rs.100 crores will get income tax exemption.
