Recognising economic recovery and growth as co-operative effort of
the Central and State Governments, meeting with Finance Ministers of
States held as part of preparation of the Budget. This is intended to
become an annual feature.
Short-term Measures
To counter the negative fallout of the global slowdown on the Indian
economy, Government responded by providing three focused fiscal
stimulus packages in the form of tax relief and increased expenditure
on public projects along with RBI taking a number of monetary easing
and liquidity enhancing measures.
Fiscal accommodation led to an increase in fiscal deficit from 2.7 per
cent in 2007-08 to 6.2 per cent of GDP in 2010-09.


The market had high expectations from the Union Budget 2009-10,
especially with the Economic Survey suggesting radical changes --
including review, phase out surcharges, cesses and transaction taxes
and annual target of Rs 25,000 crore per annum from disinvestment of
stake in PSUs for the next five years.
While Union Budget did remove Fringe Benefit Tax, markets found
the hike in Minimum Alternate Tax from 10% to 15% a bigger irritant.
Also, contrary to market expectations, fiscal deficit is set to zoom to
6.8% in the fiscal year 2009-10, up from 6.2% as per provisional
accounts of FY 2010-09.
The markets were expecting inflows from auction of 3G spectrum
auctions and the inflow from divestment of stake in PSUs to ensure
that fiscal deficit does not shoot over 6.0%. However, the budget
documents indicate that the deficit will touch 6.8% for FY 2009-10.
Similarly, revenue deficit is set to increase to 4.8% in FY 2009-10
from 4.6% in FY 2010-09 .
He hike in Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) from 10% to 15% is an
irritant for the corporate sector. On the positive side, this hike has
come with a benefit of extending the period allowed to carry forward
the tax credit under MAT from 7 years to 10 years.
Also, the hike in MAT will not be 'earnings dilutive', but will only be
'cash flow dilutive'. The increase in liability towards MAT will be
matched by an incremental deferred tax credit.
Hence, the net profit or EPS of a company will not change due to hike
in MAT from 10% to 15%. However, it will lead to an increase in
cash outflow and if the company is not returning to profits as per the
Income tax Act within ten years, then it may have to forego these.
So, from the current year's point of view, the increase in MAT from
10% to 15% is not earnings dilutive but cash flow dilutive.
On the other hand, the removal of Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) is a major
positive for corporate India.
The finance minister has said that surcharge on income tax for
individuals will be waived.
The finance minister has said that the budget proposals are revenue
neutral as far as direct tax is concerned. This is so despite the fact that
the exemption limit on personal income tax has been hiked by Rs
15,000 to Rs 2.40 lakh for senior citizens.
Similarly, the exemption limit was hiked by Rs 10,000 each to Rs 1.90
lakh for women taxpayers and to Rs 1.60 lakh for all other categories
of individual taxpayers.
As the minimum tax bracket is 10%, this means the benefit for senior
citizens will be Rs 1,500 per annum and for others (including women
tax payers) will be Rs 1,000 per annum. The benefit could be more,
including the surcharge waived.
The Union Budget has increased the deduction under section 80 DD in
respect of maintenance, including medical treatment, of a dependent
with severe disability has been raised from Rs 75,000 to Rs 1 lakh (Rs
In a way, the biggest (maximum) and the largest (covering more
people) beneficiary of the Union Budget 2009-10 is the salaried class.
Their disposable income has been increased through hike in IT
exemption limit and removal of surcharge.
The Union Budget has robbed corporates to increase disposable
income of individuals. As a result, while corporate taxes are expected
to rise by 15.6% to Rs 256,725 crore, personal income tax is expected
to fall by nearly 8% to Rs 112,850 crore in FY 2009-10.
Auto sector has to contend with the reduction in excise duty on
vehicles that were left out in the three-stimulus package announced in
The Union Budget 2009-10 has cut the excise duty for petrol trucks to
8% from 20%. In addition, the ad valorem (duty by value) duty on
cars and sports utility vehicles of engine capacity equal and above
2,000cc has been reduced by Rs 5,000/unit to Rs 15,000, auguring
well for vehicle manufacturers.
In addition, the budget has further provided for a more level playing
field between road freight and other modes of transport (including
coastal shipping and railways) by applying a uniform service tax rate.
This will reduce the incremental disadvantage in pricing faced by road
freight operators. Overall the Union Budget 2009-10 is marginally
positive for the sector.
The Indian software industry has something to cheer from the Budget
2009. The budget proposes to abolish FBT, which would mean lower
cash outgo and lower administration hassles. Also, the budget
proposes extension of STPI scheme (sun-set clause) for one more
year, i.e. for FY2010-11.
This would mean one more year of relief on the taxation front for the
IT companies. The budget proposes to exempt the value attributable to
the transfer of the right to use packaged software from excise duty and
Finally, the budget proposes to increase the MAT limit from 10% to
15% and extend the period allowed to carry forward the tax credit
under MAT from 7 years to 10 years.
Though this would mean higher cash outgo due to taxes to be paid
on higher tax rate, on an overall basis the impact on earnings would be
On the administrative side, the budget proposes set up of alternative
dispute resolution mechanism to be created within the Income Tax
department for the resolution of transfer pricing disputes empowering
the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) to formulate 'safe harbour'
rules to reduce the impact of judgmental errors in determining transfer
price in international transactions.
The budget proposes to continue with the stimulus package extended
in February, 2009 up to December 31, 2009 to the print media,
comprising waiver of 15% agency commission on DAVP
advertisements and a 10% increase in the DAVP rates to be paid as a
'special relief' subject to documentary proof of loss of revenue in non-
governmental advertisements.
This will spell relief for the print media sector, which is reeling due to
slowing advertising revenues. With the election season over, DAVP
advertising would begin and is likely to fill up some of the revenue
shortfall created by the slowing economy.
However, the benefit would not be major as the share of DAVP of the
total advertising revenues is 10-20%.
Looking at the opportunity and growth in rural sector, FMCG
companies are now focussing on the rural region for their volume
The focus on rural sector in the budget -- like increase in agriculture
credit flow to Rs 325,000 crore, allocation of loan to farmer up to 3
lakh at the rate of 7%, and144% increase in allocation for National
Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme to Rs 39,100 crore -- will give
the required boosts to the FMCG industry.
Along with it, an increase in teh exemption limit in personal income
tax by Rs 15,000 to Rs 2.40 lakh for senior citizens; by Rs 10,000 to
Rs 1.90 lakh for women tax payers; and by Rs 10,000 to Rs.1.60 lakh
for all other categories of individual taxpayers, eliminating the
surcharge of 10% on personal income-tax, abolition of Fringe Benefit
Tax (FBT) and introduction of the Goods and Services Tax with effect
from April 1, 2010 will the help the FMCG sector to continue it
moment for the FY09.
The paper sector didn't receive any much attention from the finance
minster in the budget. However, the paper industry is thankful to the
finance minister for not increasing the excise duty, which was cut by
600 basis points in the first two-stimulus packages to the current level
of 4%.
The paper industry, which is suffering from low cost export, was
expecting a rise in basic custom duty (BCD) from 10% to 15% on
paper/paperboards along with re-introduce component of special
additional duty to save the domestic manufacturer.
The finance minister has not heard their request. The scrips to be
watch will be Ballarpur Industries (BILT), JK Paper, Tamil Nadu
Newsprint & Papers (TNPL).
ENTERTAINMENT:- (Customs duty imposed on STB at 5%)
The budget proposes to levy basic customs duty of 5% on Set-Top
Boxes. This would be a negative for the cable and DTH operators who
are already reeling under losses on the back of higher customer
acquisition cost as compared to revenue per customer.
In order to ensure balanced application of fertilizers to increase
agricultural productivity, the government intends to move towards a
nutrient-based subsidy regime so as to cover larger basket of fertilizers
with innovative fertilizer products available in the market at
reasonable prices.
Besides, the government also intends to move to a system of direct
transfer of subsidy to the farmers. The system of direct transfer of
subsidy to farmers is laudable, but only if competition is allowed
amongst fertilizer companies to price their products.
Here the problem arises due to substantial difference in cost of
production depending on the feedstock used, like natural gas,
regassified LNG, naphtha, other alternate fuels etc. So, while it was
the government which encouraged fertilizer capacity additions through
feedstock other than gas, it cannot shy away from its responsibility.
Also, if Indian fertilizer production comes down and domestic
consumption continues to rise, the country may have to pay heavy
price of sharp spike in global prices and import in larger quantities at
such high prices.
We have seen this in wheat, sugar, etc, and hope we shall not see it in
fertilizers. How the government achieves this remains to be seen.
Customs duty on rock phosphate was reduced to 2% from 5% earlier.
Excise duty on naphtha was also reduced to 14%. Although the lower
customs duty and excise duty on rock phosphate and naphtha
respectively will enable the fertilizer manufacturers to reduce their
production cost, important issues like the timely subsidy payment,
measure to attract new investment went unaddressed.
There was also no time slab announced within which the nutrient-
based subsidy regime and the direct payment of subsidy to the farmers
are implemented. Thus the budget was really a dull affair for the
fertilizer sector.
Although Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) was abolished, there was no
clarity on the other demand of the industry body. The pesticides
industry had requested for reduction in excise duty on pesticides from
8% to 4%, besides lowering excise duty to 4% from the current level
of 16% for furnace oil.
The industry had also requested for zero import duty for major fuels
like fuel oil, LSHS, coal, etc. None of these, however, materialised in
the budget.
Request for lower import duty on inputs and fuels for captive power
plants and reduction of service tax was also denied. Thus, the budget
for the pesticides industry is negative as far as immediate impact is
In the Budget 2009-10, full exemption from 4% special CVD on parts
for manufacture of mobile phones and accessories has been proposed
to be reintroduced for one year.
The proposal is positive for the telecom services industry as it will
help in achieving the key objective of the government to ensure fast
spread of affordable connectivity to the rural areas.
But whether the cost of mobile phones will come down is a moot
The finance minister made few announcements for the oil and gas
sector and one of the major ones was the extension of tax holiday
under Section 80 IB (9) for production of natural gas too.
The demand for deregulation of the oil sector, however, was not
fulfilled. But the government set up an expert group to advise on a
viable and sustainable system of pricing petroleum products.
The announcements made in the budget are marginally positive for the
sector in spite of major expectations remaining unfulfilled.
Slew of initiatives for the oil and gas sector have been proposed in the
budget. These include:

• The government shall set up an expert group to advise on a viable and

sustainable system of pricing petroleum products.
• Tax holiday under section 80-IB(9) of the Income Tax Act, which was
hitherto available in respect of profits arising from the commercial
production or refining of mineral oil, to be extended to natural gas. This tax
benefit to be available to undertakings in respect of profits derived from the
commercial production of mineral oil and natural gas from oil and gas
blocks which are awarded under the NELP-VIII round of bidding. The
section to be retrospectively amended to provide that "undertaking" for the
purposes of section 80-IB(9) will mean all blocks awarded in any single
• The government shall prepare a blueprint to be developed for long
distance gas pipelines leading to a National Gas Grid to facilitate
transportation of gas across the length and breadth of the country.
• The outlay for Assam Gas Cracker Project stepped up suitably in B.E.
• Excise duty on naphtha to be reduced to 14%.
• Duty paid High Speed Diesel blended with upto 20% bio-diesel to be
fully exempted from excise duties.
• The ad valorem component of excise duty of 6% on petrol intended
for sale with a brand name to be converted into a specific rate.
Consequently, such petrol would now attract total excise duty of Rs.14.50
per litre instead of '6% + Rs.13 per litre'.
• The ad valorem component of excise duty of 6% on diesel intended
for sale with a brand name to be converted into a specific rate.
Consequently, such diesel would now attract total excise duty of Rs.4.75
per litre instead of '6% + Rs.3.25 per litre'.
• Customs duty on bio-diesel to be reduced from 7.5% to 2.5%
• The steel industry was expecting an increase in import duty on
certain steel and steel products and was also hopeful of a hike in
export tax on iron ore.
• None of these two demands of the industry was met. However,
focus on infrastructure is expected to provide indirect demand push.
• From a medium-term perspective, the government plans to
increase the investment in infrastructure to more than 9 per cent of
GDP by 2014. Overall, with industry demands not met the Budget is
neutral for the steel sector with a negative bias.
• The real estate sector looked up to to the budget with great hope
for measures to resurrect the housing demand. It had asked for
increase in 80C benefit to Rs 3 lakh and of which 2 lakh exclusively
for principal repayment, extension of 100% deduction of interest on
payment for owner occupied house as well like rented house,
extension of sunset clause u/s 10A and 10B, etc.
• While the extension of 10A and 10B benefits were granted for
one more year, auguring well for commercial real estate -- especially,
STPI space -- with no major change in tax benefits for investment in
real estate sector, the budget has not done any thing concrete to
resurrect the demand for the realty sector.
• However, removal of surcharge for income up to Rs 10 lakh (Rs
1 million), increase in tax exemption by Rs 15,000 for senior citizens
and by Rs 10,000 for women and other assesses will improve
disposable income.
• But this will largely be inadequate considering the current
property prices in urban centers and interest rates and will hardly be
any incentive for pushing up demand for real estate sector.
Capital Goods :-( No clear measures to encourage
• The increased allocation for central funded schemes such as
APDRP, Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana has been good
for the electrical equipment industry.
• On the flipside, the budget has not clearly spelt out any measures
to encourage private investment in infrastructure or the manufacturing
• Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY) to be
continued during the Eleventh Plan period with a capital subsidy of Rs
28,000 crore. Allocation of Rs 5,500 crore for 2010-09.
• Corpus for the Rural Infrastructure Development Fund (RIDF-XIV) to
be raised in 2010-09 to Rs 14,000 crore, with a separate window for rural
• Increase in short term capital gains from 10 per cent to 15 per cent.
• Change in treatment of securities transaction tax (STT) from rebate to
an expenditure.

Impact on sector :-
• No relief to the infrastructure financing sector in terms of tax rates.
• Infrastructure financing companies to benefit under the public private
partnerships proposed under various infrastructure schemes. The corpus for
the Rural Infrastructure Development Fund will facilitate such PPP projects
in the rural segments as well.
• Companies that finance rural electrification will benefit from the
additional subsidy offered to RGGVY.

Impact on companies :-
• Rural Electrification Corporation will benefit from the additional
subsidy offered to RGGVY.
• IDFC to benefit from private participation in infrastructure projects.
• HDFC to benefit from the subsidies offered to rural housing due to the
company’s focus on the same.
• Broking firms like Indiainfoline, India Bulls to be impacted by
reduction in trading volumes arising out of higher short term tax.
• Treatment of STT is expected to impact brokers especially those who
are involved in proprietary book trading and arbitrage. Overall volume in
the market can be impacted due to reduction in volmes and can thus
increase impact cost
