Avinash G Singh, Executive Vice President, Investment Research and Advisory, Aranca

 “India’s Finance Minister, Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman, presented the interim budget for 2024,
coinciding with the upcoming General Elections scheduled to be held this year. The key takeaways
were not beyond expectations, considering that the main budget will be presented once the new
government is sworn in at the center. That said, the FM’s focus on tourism, air and road connectivity,
affordable housing, and healthcare in her speech reflects the government’s long-term plans to improve the quality of life for the middle class through multi-year initiatives.  Additionally, the proposed provision of 300 units of free electricity for 10 million households under the new solar power policy also underscores the government’s commitment to advancing investments and development within the renewable energy space.

The Union Budget 2024 reflects a forward-looking perspective with ambitious goals, envisioning a
prosperous India in harmony with nature and bolstered by modern infrastructure to achieve a
developed India by 2047. Simplify3x is wholeheartedly aligned with Finance Minister Nirmala
Sitharaman’s vision of inclusive growth, emphasizing collective progress ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’.
To catalyze technological innovation on a larger scale, a novel initiative has been introduced,
involving the creation of a ₹1 lakh crore corpus, providing a 50-year interest-free loan. This strategic
move aims to offer long-term financial support with extended tenures and minimal interest rates,
ushering in an era of unparalleled development and golden opportunities for all stakeholders.
