The IT & Education sectors look forward for a strong budget with more incentives for boosting the startup ecosystem. The ITIR announced last year was a welcome move; the industry now hopes this will be further enhanced this year. This budget hopefully will provide clarity on the 10,000 Cr fund allocated for startups last year.
The Make in India initiative is a crucial move to encourage more and more startups and create a business favorable perception for India. It would be a great step if government can consider strengthening primary & secondary education in the country through enhancing digital & technology solutions. Tech startups in this space should be given special incentives to enhance skill development in primary & higher secondary education.
