FINANCE Bill 2016: BUDGET 2016-2017

This Year i.e. 2016-2017 Budget was Presented by Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley (Budget of 2014-15 & 2015-16 also by Arun Jaitley under the Prime Minsiter  of India Mr.Narendra Modi) Finance Minister has started the Budget with Following Paragraph on February 29, 2016

“I am presenting this Budget when the global economy is in serious crisis. Global growth has slowed down from 3.4% in 2014 to 3.1% in 2015. Financial markets have been battered and global trade has contracted. Amidst all these global headwinds, the Indian economy has held its ground firmly. Thanks to our inherent strengths and the policies of this Government, a lot of confidence and hope continues to be built around India. The International Monetary Fund has hailed India as a ‘bright spot’ amidst a slowing global economy. The World Economic Forum has said that India’s growth is ‘extraordinarily high’. We accomplished this despite very unfavourable conditions and despite the fact that we inherited an economy of low growth, high inflation and zero investor confidence in Government’s capability to govern. We converted these difficulties and challenges into opportunities.”
