I have not come across ever that any union budget had ever satisfied people from all sections of our society. As far as increase in the prices of the illustrated items is concerned, if we turn the pages of our previous budgets, it would be clear that the exercise of price adjustment by reducing and increasing in tax rates of different household goods was done in all of those budgets. Looking to the severe side affects on consuming tobacco and tobacco products, taxes on the related items are stiffly increased during all budget exercises to discourage their consumption. The new Income Tax Rules will certainly give relief to those at higher tax slabs. more  
Please vote again for this govt.- they are only ruining the economy. The middle class is the worst hit. more  
This budget has not satisfied any sector of the economy except Foreign investors. Nothing for the Real estate, nothing for the education, nothing for the manufacturing industries, nothing for the individual taxpayers (as the IT rate cut is subject to waiver of deductions, making it more complicated, but the earlier rate cut in Coporate tax was made without any binder), bad for haircutters (as everything from comb to hairdryer to curler is going to be more expensive), nothing for jobless youths and so on. Only a wishlist was showcased. The effect was evident on the Hon'ble FM herself who was so sick with her own wish list that she could not finish her speech even. more  
हम सिर्फ़ बचाने की ही बात क्यूँ सोचते है बढ़े हुए टैक्स ही देशहित में है more  
Hum kewal tax hi bharte rahe taki desh ki netaon ki pet badte rahe? Hum sab cheez par zyada tax de, taki rajnetaon ne 2 rupaye mein Biriyani khate rahe? Bah bhai bah! Kya vichar hai aapka! more  
The budget exercise was supposed to be a booster to the economy. The taxes were supposed to be reduced. Instead there is an increase in taxes all round affecting the amount of money the middle income hasin their hands. How canthisboost soendingabd revive the economy more
