Post-Budget quote from Chairman of Microsoft India Bhaskar Pramanik:
There were five specific priorities that I was looking for to be addressed in this maiden budget by the new Government – ubiquitous use of technology for inclusive growth, enhancing the education ecosystem, promoting a tax regime that is stable and growth oriented, focus on the start-up ecosystem and greater impetus to the manufacturing sector. It is heartening to note that the budget has provided the right direction on these.
India’s transformation has to be powered by technology – this is well recognized by the Government and has been articulated in the various initiatives in the Budget. I see this budget setting the stage for higher growth on strong fundamentals of manufacturing and infrastructure sectors, built on the backbone of technology.
