The annual budget is a reflection of the government’s priorities. Alternatively, it is an opportunity to materialise economic recovery, growth, and inclusivity through fiscal management. On June 11, the current government announced its fourth budget with a total outlay of Rs8.487 trillion and gross revenue receipts (tax and non-tax) of Rs7.909 trillion. The budget is presumed to be growth-oriented, as the focus has been shifted from stabilisation to a growth-centric phase where some incentives have been offered to various sectors. Among these, support to industrialists, exporters, stocks traders, and construction and services sectors through reduction or exemption in duties or taxes are the obvious ones.
