it is really worst budget for a salaried person. No tax relaxation and more over government is selling its share from LIC which will defentely degrade the value of LIC to its customer. more  
It seems the doctrine behind the ne regime is 'save less, spend more' to boost consumerism, and hence economy. There are people who cares little about future/difficult times/old ages etc. It is easy to find out boys who spends lavishly with little or no savings (but expects handsome dowry and recurring 'gifts' from their in-laws). Budget would definitely encourage such social evils. However, nothing prevents an individual to make savings in non-tax saving schemes, as also to remain in the regime of lower income tax. more

I feel the budget which is cutting down savings exemptions may lead to a difficult proposition in future for middle class. Many middle class employees depend on savings like PF, NSC, PPF etc., which provide relief at retirement. We need to understand, in our country social security net work is very weak and many retired private sector employees are not provided with such facility. By removing deductions or savings out of mediclaim, pf, ppf etc., will definitely drive towards consumerism but make post retirement life difficult. Further, taking out benefits from FDs etc., will lead to lessen savings habit and make life difficult for all sectors people in such cases like current down economic trend or recession.
Need to protect middle class employees through Savings and suitable safe social security network. more  
One of the best budget exercise passed by Nimmi and modi. what best we can expect. don"t listen to Political comments. It never carries reality opinions. Short list comments from Industrialists economists experts most of them welcomed the budget. Howdi Modi. more
