Industry-friendly policies in Budget?

“Over the years we have seen that most Central Governments maintain a good balance between social and economic objectives during the budget. So, I don’t expect this year will be any different. In the last two budgets we have seen that the government is actively listening to the industry experts and addressing the gaps in policy and taxation. This budget should ideally further that exercise in bringing industry-friendly policies that can bolster overall Economic growth. I feel that the government is keen on expanding the “Make in India” initiative and we should hope that there would be some measures that can enable substantial increase in capital expenditure by the private sector. Infrastructure stays one of the core focus areas for the government and we should expect some announcements related to that along with some positive announcements for the farming sector. The tax collection during the last nine months have been quite robust and much ahead of the budget estimates for the current year. There is a good possibility that the government may have a fiscal deficit number which is lower than the budgeted and that could be a positive surprise,” said Raghvendra Nath, Managing Director – Ladderup Wealth Management Private Limited on Pre-Budget expectations.

USD- INR resistance at 75.20-75.30

On the domestic front, the rupee continues to feel the heat led by broad dollar strength amid the Fed’s hawkish stance, consistent FII selling, and rising oil prices to 7-year highs on the back of geopolitical troubles in Ukraine. The fundamental and technical factors suggest the likely depreciation mode towards 75.50-76.00 levels, however with the BIG BULL-RBI, it will be watchful to see if it intervenes to cap losses beyond 75.30 or let rupee to the market. Technically for USDINR, we are standing on the verge of the crucial resistance zone of 75.20-75.30. If the USDINR pair trades convincingly above 75.30 then we can see it heading towards 75.50 to 76.00 levels. Overall, the bias for the pair is likely to remain on the upside. As volatility remains at a peak at both ends, it is necessary to strictly follow a defined risk management policy. Amit Pabari, managing director, CR Forex Advisors
