At Wealthmunshi, we are committed to keeping you informed about the latest economic developments that could impact your financial strategy. The Indian government has announced its budget for 2024, and we have distilled the key points that are most relevant to you as an investor and wealth holder.
Fiscal Prudence and Economic Growth
The fiscal deficit is set at 5.1% of GDP for 2024-25, signaling a commitment to fiscal prudence. This could mean a more stable economic environment, potentially benefiting your investments in India.
A projected nominal GDP growth of 10.5% y/y suggests a robust economic outlook, which could be favorable for the growth of your assets.
Steady Tax Regime
No changes in direct and indirect tax rates, providing a stable tax environment for your existing and potential investments.
Continued tax benefits for Start-Ups and investments by Sovereign wealth funds and pension funds, which could be of interest if you’re looking into alternative investment opportunities in India.
Boost in Infrastructure and Green Energy
A significant Rs.11.1 trillion allocation for infrastructure development indicates potential growth in this sector, an area worth considering for portfolio diversification. The focus on green energy initiatives, such as coal gasification and liquefaction, may present new opportunities in the sustainable energy sector.
Emphasis on Social and Health Programs
Increased spending in health and education sectors reflects a strengthening of India’s social infrastructure, potentially leading to a more balanced and inclusive economic growth.
