‘Budget will bring more gold into the country through official channels’

Increasing FDI limit in insurance to 74% from 49% is another progressive announcement that will bring more investments and activity in this sector

The 2021-22 budget has laid clear emphasis on economic growth, according to George Alexander Muthoot, MD, Muthoot Finance. 
He also said that the financial services sector will play a crucial role in achieving the development goals of the government. 

“Among the several business friendly announcements, some that stood out for us include net rationalisation of customs duty on gold by 2.5% which should bring more gold into the country through official channels and incentivising purchase of affordable homes by extending eligibility period for claiming additional deduction of interest paid of Rs. 1.5 lakh to 31st March 2022,” he added. 

“Increasing FDI limit in insurance to 74% from 49% is another progressive announcement that will bring more investments and activity in this sector. Lastly, reflective of the importance of the MSME sector, the government has provided Rs. 15,700 cr for it, double of last year’s budgeted estimate and we stand steadfast with the MSMEs, individuals and entrepreneurs of India in financing and enabling their Atmanirbhar Bharat ambitions.”
