Nirmala Sitharaman takes tips from Manmohan Singh on how to present blockbuster Budget
Nobody can dispute that the dynamic duo of PV Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh transformed India into the powerhouse that it is today, thanks to their policies of liberalization and opening the doors of the economy to deep-pocketed foreign investors.
In addition, Manmohan Singh is a renowned economist and former RBI Governer.
He knows all the tricks of how to wake the economy from slumber and catapult it.
In fact, the reforms ushered in by the duo of Rao and Singh led to mega multibagger gains for the investors who had invested in stocks at that time.
So, it is in the fitness of things that Hon’ble Nirmala Sitharaman, the Finance Minister, paid a visit to Manmohan Singh on the eve of the Budget.
No doubt, MMS would have given her valuable counsel on what she should, and should not, do in her debut Budget.

LTCG tax to be junked, tax rates to be slashed?
The common demand in Dalal Street in that the dreaded LTCG tax should be junked.
It may be recalled that when the tax was first introduced, eminent visionaries like Shankar Sharma and Samir Arora had warned that it will “kill the equity cult” in the Country (see Tax On Capital Gains Will Kill Equity Cult Say Shankar Sharma & Samir Arora).
No doubt, this ominous prophecy has come true as one can see from the deserted lanes in Dalal Street.
Ajay Bagga eloquently echoed the sentiments of the investors.
“LTCG लगने से बाजार में निवेशकों को बहुत दिक्कतें हुई हैं अब सरकार को इसे हटा लेना चाहिए,” he said in chaste Hindi.

Vijay Kedia pointed out that Indian investors are presently paying a nose-bleed tax rate of 60-70%. He opined that this is an anomaly and suggested that that the tax rates should be slashed.
Indian investors in 60% to 70% tax bracket; Budget should correct this anomaly. Over 95% investors are going through a tough time. Primary index is deceptive, does not portray true picture. @nsitharamanhttps://t.co/gOlzEprRCa
