There have been mixed reactions to the just presented Union Budget by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. While some hail it, others say that there was nothing much in it. R Vaidyanathan, a professor of Finance at Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore and an expert on financial matters tells OneIndia that overall this is a neutral budget.
“It is not a budget that has taken risks. I personally feel that it is a budget that has been constrained by the directive of the Election Commission in view of the ongoing poll process in the five states, he says.
