On 1st Feb 2017 SOM took initiative from students to make them understand LIVE SESSION OF BUDGET 2017. Under this they had seen the Live Speech of Hon. Finance Minister of India.
Later on, Prof Ritesh Kumar Verma & Dr. Nailesh Limbasiya attended Post Budget Analysis Session of CII.
Taking this initiative forward we conducted the session on “Budget 2017 Analysis” on led by both of the professors. All the students of SOM attended the session.
The Session was a fruitful experience for SOM students and a great initiative. The Jist from the session about BUDGET 2017 is:
A decent balancing of adding thrust to core areas like agriculture, infrastructure and financial sector, with fiscal prudence. It is an inclusive Budget and the steps taken to address some pressing concerns, especially of the rural economy are welcome. The focus on manufacturing and the impetus given to skill development was much needed for job creation. In the wake of demonetization, the decisive push towards digital is on expected lines. Clearly a budget reflecting the Government’s stated priorities and long-term agenda.
