“We welcome the budget and the government has tried to present a balanced budget especially benefiting the lower income group. We welcome the announcement that individual taxpayers having taxable annual income up to Rs. 5 lakhs will not be required to pay any income tax.

Moreover, the multiple benefits offered to farmers, MSMEs and middle classes will certainly increase their disposable income which in turn can stimulate the demand for gold, diamond and precious stone jewellery.

“We understand that the budget presented today was a vote on accounts budget and is not a full budget. We welcome Govt.’s thrust on ensuring progress and prosperity through the budget. The relief given in direct taxes to middle classes and farmers will be good for increasing jewellery demand in the country. Also we hope that with the capital infused in the banking sector and banks coming out of PCA wil help in solving the shortage of working capital for our exporters. At the same time we are disappointed that the demand for decrease in import duty of raw materials like gold, silver, c&p diamonds and coloured gemstones were not included in the budget today. We hope that during the declaration of the full budget after elections the gems and jewellery sector demands will be addressed.”
