Foreword 
Dear All,This year was a watershed year for Tax Policy and Legislation in India, with definitive stepsbeing taken towards complete revamping of both Direct and Indirect Taxes in the country.Infact, as we move to the DTC and the GST by 1st April 2012, the current Budget could wellbe the last of the budget exercises, as we have known them till date.As regards DTC there is continuous affirmation of its introduction by 1st April, 2012. Postthe exercise, by the Parliamentary Sub-Committee the final frame work of the DTC will bepublicly available over the next few months. There are critical Legislative and Policyformulations yet to emerge, such as, the GAAR provisions and the Safe Harbour provisions.The challenges as to GST are clearly more enhanced, as the process involves the Centreand the States. Significant work has been done, but, what remains to be done is even moresignificant. Key milestones going forward will be Constitutional Amendment, the formationof the GST Council and the formation of the dispute settlement mechanism.In the interim, significant changes have been made to the CENVAT credit provisions, whichwill more immediately impact the industry.At ELP, in our continued endeavor to bring you value, we have set out the accompanyingdetailed analysis of the Budget.We look forward to your comments and questions.Warm Regards,Rohan ShahManaging PartnerEconomic Laws PracticeDate: February 28, 2011
