What is the most striking feature of the Budget? The proposal to enhance connectivity between rural areas and cities as a part of the National Rural Internet and Technology Mission is a good one.
Also, the announcement to set up new IITs and IIMs will help improve quality of education in India. What could have been better? The decision to not allocate funds for the promotion of cultural activities is disheartening. Also, all rivers should be brought under the umbrella of the Ganga Conservation Plan.
