Post-Budget Reaction by Ms. Devita Saraf, CEO and Design Head, Vu Technologies
Government’s make in India initiative has been initiated to encourage the local manufacturers. But in contrast I believe the budget has been quite disappointing. Presently, the import duty is extremely high. Even we import our TVs. We were hoping for some standard operating procedures whereas the excise duty has been increased on manufacturing. I believe that to support their own initiatives and the country, they should have done much more. Furthermore, we were also hopeful on the digitization aspect. But overall, there hasn’t been much considered to materialize Make in India and Digital India initiatives.
