New Delhi: Reacting to the Union Budget 2021-22 presented by the Union Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman in Indian Parliament today, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said the budget will not only accelerate the Covid-19 recovery period but also provide “a direction for 3-4 years”.
“Superb Budget. It’ll not only accelerate us in pre-COVID period recovery stage but also provide a direction for 3-4 yrs. The government focussed on infrastructure and asset monetisation this time which shows the government’s thinking that it’s essential to involve the private sector in the long run,” Kant reportedly said.
“It’s a very practical, rational & progressive Budget. Most importantly, tax has not been tampered with and no new cesses have been imposed,” he added.
