The budget is expected to prioritize infrastructural development and also other important sectors including defence, railways, and renewable energy.

How would the 2024 Union Budget support businesses and labour?

When it comes to businesses and companies, the government is aiming to boost India’s ease of doing business by decriminalising over 100 law provisions, reducing the consequences to fines, and therefore, reducing the burden of cases on courts.

The government is also looking to establish the Mediation Council of India (MCI) to further reduce the burden of cases on courts and improve ease of doing businesses.

The new budget will also likely unveil a new labour and welfare index for comparing and potentially improving uniformity across various states in implementing labour laws.
