What have been your biggest worries recently - money-wise?
Rising costs are impacting growth and adversely affecting our savings.
What are your biggest expectations from this budget?
Hope the budget strikes a balance between income and inflationary growth and paves the way for robust investments, creation of employment opportunities and keeps the fiscal deficit under control.
How would you rate the Modi government so far? Have they been all talk and little action?
I will rate Modi Government 6 out of 10 for its novel initiatives aimed at making India a business and investment hub. But its actions are not matching their big talk. The time to act is now to effect a change in the society and economy.
Any novel ideas for the Finance Minister?
The Finance Minister should widen the ambit of the tax structure and set up a progressive tax system in the country for stable growth.
