Meanwhile, budget carrier SpiceJet Chairman and Managing Director Ajay Singh said the finance minister has managed to do something for a large cross-section of society — middle class, farmers, and workers in the unorganised sector.

“This is a people’s budget that will help the economy and also lays down a vision for the next 10 years. This could well be a game changer budget in this election year.
“I feel that the government with this budget has certainly injected a lot of josh without losing its hosh!” Singh said.

Not-for-profit group CUTS International’s Secretary General Pradeep S Mehta said with the general elections few months away, the Budget, on expected lines, was replete with populist measures to woo voters.
