Finance Minister P Chidambaram [ Images ] presented the Union Budget for 2006-07 in Parliament on Tuesday. His proposals have left many a person wondering if the Budget is good or not.
With Assembly elections just round the corner, Chidambaram has managed to strike a balance between a populist and a positive Budget. He hasn't raised or lowered tax rates. He has even diluted Fringe Benefit Tax.
Do you think the Budget is good? Will prices of goods drop or rise? Will the stock markets continue to soar? What else could Chidambaram have done?
