What is Union Budget?

The Union Budget of India, referred to as an annual Financial Statement in Article 112 of the Constitution of India, is the annual budget of the Republic of India, presented each year by the Finance Minister of India in Parliament. The India budget has to be passed by the House before it can come into effect on April 1st, the start of India's financial year.

Union Budget FY 2012-13 Overview

The special focus on UIDAI and the stress on leveraging IT to create an effective implementation platform for government delivery of programs and direct transfer of subsidies have been unanimously welcomed and seen as providing fillip to the domestic IT sector. However, this failed to make up for the many misses. The increase in both service tax and excise is seen as a big setback for the Indian IT sector. Further, the budget failed to address the software industry’s key demand around tax reforms as well.

  • Excise duty raised to 12% from 10%
  • GST likely to be operational by August 2012

The National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) has been selected as technology partner for incubating the National Information Utility that will establish and operate the IT backbone for the GST.
  • Exemption limit for direct taxes increased to Rs 2lakh from Rs 1.8 lakh in FY13
  • Propose additional funds for Aadhar to cross 40 cr enrollment
  • UID allocation at Rs 14,232cr in FY13
  • 10% of IPO above Rs 10cr via electronic platform
  • Advance Pricing Agreements in DTC to be in Finance Bill
