When he started his Budget Speech, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said what has been largely expected that the budget will focus on Agriculture and rural economy. He did not disappoint this expectation, with what is largely a ‘Socialist’ budget, and Dr Niranjan Hiranandani, CMD Hiranandani Communities and President (Nation), NAREDCO said he rated the Budget at 3 out of 5.

“Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has managed to balance populist demands, the need to support economic growth and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s focus on fiscal discipline and reforms,” he added.

From a real estate perspective, the Finance Minister said the government will establish a dedicated affordable housing fund in the National Housing Bank through various funding measures. “This is a welcome step,” said Dr Niranjan Hiranandani.
