For farmers, there have been several schemes by different govts from time to time, but only 2-3 crore farmers were included under these schemes. But now PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme will benefit over 12 crore farmers who own 5 acres or less than 5 acres of land.
It's generosity and honesty of middle class and upper middle class which provides tax to the nation through which schemes are formulated and there is welfare of poor. There was always the demand to exempt those, with annual income up to Rs 5 Lakh, from taxation. Our govt fulfilled this: PM Modi.
This Budget will fulfil the aspirations of countrymen, says PM Modi
Our policies have made positive changes in the lives of the people, says PM Modi.
From middle class to labourers, from farmers’ growth to the development of businessmen, from manufacturing to MSME sector, from growth of the economy to development of New India, everyone has been taken care of in this interim budget: PM Modi on budget
This is an Interim Budget. This is just a trailer of the budget which, after elections, will take India on the path to development: PM Modi
