Union Budget FY14: Highlights
Fiscal math largely credible. Revenue slightly aggressive, but expenditure and subsidies well provided for. Consolidation process continues. Fiscal deficit for FY14 budgeted at ~4.8% of GDP (our estimate ~5.0% of GDP). Budgeted net borrowing is at ~INR 4.8tn. We believe it could be a bit higher by ~INR200bn. However, gross borrowing came higher than expected as government intends to rebalance the maturity profile of debt. Budget was growth supportive as it intended to support investments through extra tax exemptions for investment in plant and machinery. Further, it substantially raised the limits of tax‐free infra bonds. Some attempt has been made to boost financial savings by liberalising coverage of Rajiv Gandhi Equity Scheme (RGES) and insurance sector. Further, the finance minister announced that inflation indexed bonds will be introduced possibly with the intent to curb gold imports. While the finance minister cited CAD as a big worry, no export boosting measures were announced.

Positively impacted companies are:
y Capital goods companies namely Thermax, Cummins, ABB and Siemens y Refiners namely IOCL, BPCL, HPCL, MRPL and RIL y Housing finance companies namely LIC Housing Finance, Gruh Finance and Dewan Housing y Bus manufacturers namely Ashok Leyland, Tata Motors and Eicher Motors y Affordable housing developers namely Jaypee Infratech & Puravakankara Projects

Fiscal math looks largely credible
Fiscal math largely credible
y Fiscal consolidation process continues, although at a bit slower pace compared to FY14. The FM has announced gross fiscal deficit for FY14 at 4.8% of GDP (against 5.2% of GDP in FY13). y Broadly speaking the Budgeted fiscal target is certainly in the realm of possibility, we think that fiscal deficit of 5% of GDP is more realistic.

Revenue slightly aggressive
y Gross tax revenue collection of the government will improve on account of better tax buoyancy on account of improving economy and some changes in the taxes, which will add to government kitty. However, the benefits of headline tax rate hikes in indirect taxes last year will be absent in FY14. Overall, we think that 18% YoY growth in tax revenues is more realistic compared to 19% YoY assumed by the government (against ~17% YoY achieved in FY13). y On non‐tax revenues side as well, we think FM has been a bit aggressive, particularly with regards to telecom revenues .

Expenditure does not seem to be under‐budgeted
y Budgeted growth of 16% YoY in expenditure is sizeable and we do not see any material risk of slippage on this front. Subsidies (at ~2% of GDP) have been adequately provided especially given that government is undertaking periodic diesel price hikes. y Meanwhile, sharp cuts in plan expenditure undertaken in FY13 are being compensated by budgeting 29% YoY growth in FY14 S of this f hi i l to dsubstantial b i li i development ld l di FY14. Some is related increase in rural spending.


Minor changes in taxes
Slight changes in direct and indirect taxes
y Minor changes in the direct taxes. Surcharge raised to 10% from 5% on corporate taxes. y Surcharge introduced on super rich (income above INR 10mn) y No changes in headline indirect taxes rates. y Voluntary compliance encouragement scheme introduced in service taxes for the defaulters. y DTC bill to be introduced in this budget session itself. y GST no specific time‐frame for implementation mentioned. However, FM mentioned that significant progress has been made and he hoped to introduce constitutional amendment and draft bill in GST in coming months.


Few positive announcements…
Positive for investment
y Investment allowance of 15 % in FY14 and FY15 to manufacturing companies which invest more than INR1bn in plant and machinery. from INR250bn T free f infra i f bonds b d to t increase i f INR250b to t INR500bn. INR500b y Tax y Road regulator to iron out issues in the sector.

Incentives to boost financial savings
y RGES scheme to incentivise households savings in equities and mutual funds broadened in coverage. y Announcement to introduce inflation indexed bond. Certain steps to increase the coverage of y insurance.

y Additional tax deduction for first time house buyer (loan up to INR 2.5 million)
