Expectations from Union Budget 2024 in terms of different sectors

Though this budget will only be presented as a vote-on-account measure, many Indians expect Nirmala Sitharaman to present it with measures such as decreased taxes, increase in income-tax rebate thresholds, revision in the capital gain tax system, the inclusion of more benefits under new tax regime and removal of goods and services tax (GST) from insurance policies.

Not only this, but the recruitment industry is looking at budgetary allocation for workforce development and skill enhancement. They expect this budget to include provisions related to gig economy/ contingent workforce regulations.

“A forward-looking budget must also consider regulatory frameworks pertaining to the gig economy and contingent workforce, providing a balanced yet flexible approach that benefits both employers and workers. Encouraging collaboration among recruitment platforms and tech firms will be vital in driving innovation and keeping abreast of industry advances; by cultivating such an environment, not only can we sustain its current growth rates but we can create an atmosphere in which the gig economy is used as a powerful driving force to shape tomorrow’s work”, Sekhar Garisa, Foundit CEO said.

As well as targeting the gig economy, the industry is also seeking incentives for specific industries in order to stimulate investment, job creation, and industrial expansion.

“The budget should provide targeted incentives for specific sectors to drive investment, create jobs, and promote industrial expansion. These can be further reinforced through increases in skill development programs and incentives for job creation in informal sectors; or through promotion of equitable and stable working conditions,” according to Rohet Ramesh of Layam Group’s staffing management and talent acquisition services firm.

Women entrepreneurs are also in search of increased budgetary allocation in order to enhance their access to capital as well as increase equity-based funding.

“India currently only has three diversity-oriented funds–AWE, She Capital, and Arise–each offering relatively small fund sizes and facing challenges related to managing them effectively. To effectively promote women entrepreneurs, the upcoming budget must dedicate significant resources to support access to capital for these women entrepreneurs – specifically through increasing equity-based funding sources. The government should prioritize allocating risk capital over loan-based strategies. Many female entrepreneurs find they cannot qualify for existing schemes, highlighting the need for a more inclusive and accessible financial ecosystem. Therefore, Aditi Balbir of EcoRatings–an AI-powered platform providing ESG ratings of products and services–proposed that the budget allocate more capital towards diversity-focused funds to recognize women entrepreneurs’ role in creating a more equitable business landscape.
