Congratulations to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and the Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley on presenting a historic Budget for New India. This Budget envisions a paradigm shift in economic priorities and it will help in bridging the gap between the rural and urban areas of our country.The #Budget2018 will benefit farmers with better price realisation for their crops. The proposal of setting up MSP’s at 150 percent of the production cost from the Kharif season will help in fighting the agrarian distress in rural areas.
The proposal to launch ‘Operation Green’ in rural areas will spur agricultural growth and it will definitely go a long way in doubling the farmers’ income by 2022. The Budget has also earmarked Rs 22000 crores to strengthen agriculture infrastructure in India.
The Budget is one of the most farmer and people’s friendly Budget presented in the recent years. The proposal to include 10 crore poor and vulnerable families under the annual health cover of Rs 5 lakh will bring a massive change in health outcomes.
By extending the coverage of Pradhanmantri Ujjawala Yojana to 8 crore poor families the Union Govt has shown its commitment to bring relief to the lives of ordinary citizens. The Union Budget 2018 will also boost the economic growth and public investment. Massive allocations have been made in the infrastructure sector. It is indeed a Budget for a Progressive and Positive India.
