The wait for the Union Budget is finally over. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has laid down six key pillars for this year’s Budget. They are health, infrastructure, inclusive development, reinvigorating human capital, innovation, and minimum government and maximum governance.
To build on these key pillars and more, Fortune India spoke to Deloitte India’s partner Sanjay Kumar to discuss some critical aspects of the Budget, some hits and misses and a macro view on the economy going forward. Kumar is an expert on finance, trade and taxation, and has worked with the government for close to three decades.
