The railway budget will also be announced along with the union budget this year. However, till 2016, the railway budget used to be announced prior and separately to the Union budget but the government removed the 92-year-old convention of announcing rail budgets and union budgets separately.
Speaking about the budget, Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, told Zee Business Online, "This year, the automotive industry is undergoing a major technological transformation as we shift from BS IV to BS VI norms, enhance our safety standards and increasingly prepare towards developing the e-mobility landscape. With increased investments, we urge the government to support and uplift the declining market sentiment by reducing the GST rate and cess applied on passenger cars. Further, with the aim of promoting e-mobility in India, we request the government to outlay a stable regulatory and taxation framework that supports and incentivizes the manufacturing of electric vehicles. As an industry, we must understand the willingness of a customer and the value proposition electric vehicles will offer. With this, we look forward to a positive 2019 for the auto sector in India.”
Dr VP Singh, Professor, Economics, Great Lakes Institute of Management, Gurgaon said, "The politico-economic heat of election year is cooking the Budget. Sweet aroma of goodies emanates from Jaitley’s cauldron. Pouring of GST related benefits gives ample evidence on the nature of budget that can be expected. Interestingly, both the perspectives, economic or political, point out towards a similar nature of the budget. The NDA government emphasized on increasing rural incomes right from its first budget. The narrative has continued in every budget with more money getting allocated to agriculture, irrigation, rural roads, rural sanitation, GRAM mandis, crop insurance, soil health, health insurance, Minimum Support Price and rural employment. A lot of work still needs to be done in these areas. So, allocating more funds to these will be an obvious choice for the government. We have already seen opposition wooing the farmers with populist promises. So spending more in these areas would be politically correct too. A push towards self-employment will also be seen as it will be difficult to generate adequate number of jobs through industry and government requirements."
