Hindustan Times unpacked the Interim Budget 2019 with Dr. D K Srivastava from Ernst & Young and Hitesh Sawhney from PricewaterhouseCoopers. Given that it’s a pre-election budget, Dr. Srivastava spoke about the positive aspect of the cash dole given to marginal farmers but also pointed out how it would add to their disposable incomes which will partially add to consumption expenditure. On the other hand, Hitesh Sawhney explained how the government devised the budget keeping in mind the upcoming elections.
