Budget 2017 was much awaited given that the Modi Government had implemented its demonetization drive just a couple of months back. It was against this backdrop that CNN-News18’s award winning show, an initiative launched a decade back, once again took on the mantle of taking the people’s voice to the Honourable Finance Minister.
The cap on cash transactions above Rs. 3 lakhs and no income tax up to Rs. 3 lakhs pa were major announcements made by the FM during the Budget speech – these were key recommendations made by the channel to the Finance Minister.
