No tax relief, spending spree due in last budget before elections: Poll   India is expected to unveil only modest stimulus at this week's budget, a Reuters poll of analysts showed, despite it being the last before the next election, with government spending likely limited by longer-term efforts to trim the fiscal deficit.   The latest Reuters poll shows the government is expected to delay the timeframe for hitting that target by another year, for the third year in a row, due to setbacks in the economic outlook.   The median forecast from over 40 economists polled Jan 24-29 was for India's government to borrow 3.2% of gross domestic product (GDP) in fiscal 2018-19.
