Budget 2018-19: Common man disappointed


Reacting to the Union Budget for 2018-19 presented in the Lok Sabha by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday, the common man felt disappointed.

"Precious little for the middle class, which was expecting exemptions in tax slab,''Kamlesh, a housewife, said.

''The little concessions on the interest rates on FDs and small savings are also on senior citizens, why not for everybody who are groaning under the weight of price rise,'' Gita Ahuja, working in private sector, said.

''Earlier governments gave concession at least to women in the Income Tax slabs. But the BJP government has done away with that and has not given any relief to middle-class and salaried persons,'' Vinod, an office-goer, said.
