India's much-awaited annual budget was presented by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on 1 February 2021. As the country faces its deepest recession, the budget aims to spend big to push growth.

Key budget pillars

The budget proposals rested on six broad pillars:

  1. Health and Wellbeing
  2. Physical and Financial Capital, and Infrastructure
  3. Inclusive Development for Aspirational India
  4. Reinvigorating Human Capital
  5. Innovation and R&D
  6. Minimum Government and Maximum Governance.

In significant changes to the taxation process, Sitharaman announced the scrapping of income tax for senior citizens under certain conditions, new rules for removal of double taxation for NRIs, and a reduction in the time period of tax assessments among other measures.

Our members in India have prepared various publications to share the key takeaways from the economy, policy, and tax announcements made in the Budget speech.
