Salaried tax payers were looking for a bigger relief in the budget given the context of runaway inflation. But the finance minister gave only a marginal saving of Rs.2,000 per person by increasing the exemption limit to Rs.180,000. The increase was just 12.5%, less than the average food inflation of recent times.

Tell us whether you are happy or unhappy with the quantum of increase in tax exemption.

    Can this be called "Relief?" Are you in a mood for kidding, M/s Manmohan Singh and Pranav Mukherji, on such a serious matter? You watch with sadistic pleasure the plight of working middle-class who regularly pays its tax and then you have gift-wrapped benefits for the highest echelons of the economy who stash away their money in Swiss banks! The question is can India be Egypt? DO the people have the courage to teach lesson to the Manmohan-Pranav clique?
