Though #Budget2019 claimed to be a #bahikhata , it is more of a vision, not revenue & expenditure projection,which a bahikhata as the name suggests, is supposed to be !/1
Till 1991, budget wud consist of only figures.
Vision appeared for the first time in1991,
#NewIndia of Modi govt gives only vision (no figures), a #new trend for a positive approach & a feel good attitude/2
According to World Bank figures, in 1964 India was at rank 7th with 56 billion dollar economy (total world fig stood at 1.8 trillion dollars)
In 2019 when total world fig has reached 87 trillion, India's GDP is 2.6 trillion dollars ../3
GDP with no regard to PCI per capita income doesn't give any clear picture.. the goal of 5 trillion is possible with GDP rate of 8 % in 9 years.
The ambitious Modi govt will have to have a GDP rate of 12 to achieve its stupidly unrealistic fig of 5 trillion. /4
But who cares?
As long as we have 5 trillion dollar economy as our goal, Bhakts will be in a state of euphoria...
let the 'professional pessimists' lament.../5
Study in India ( flagship prog launched by Sushma Swaraj in 2018) is projected by Madam Sitharaman as "newly proposed"... why so??...
Chennai water crisis has no special mention..while har ghar jal yojana emerges !!! /6
Wrapped in Red cloth , #bahikhata 2019 depicts a new beginning, by discarding the western influence & colonial era tradition...
Will #DigitalIndia be banned now ? as India didn't invent modem internet...

Shall we go back to our Mahabharat era internet?/7
The end
Tax revenues retained by the Centre is 165176 crs less than the revised estimates shown in the #Budget2019
...GST collections' shortfall lead to central govt reducing its own spending which in turn resulted in a possible shrinking of entire budget /1
by 1% of GDP...
What with no access to journalists inside the North Block henceforth, will we get to know about this huge discrepancy any further & the explanation for the same... won't overall credibility of Govt & finance ministry shrink? /2
