Interim Budget 2019 Reaction - Muthoot Pappachan Group

Posted On: 2019-02-02 11:37:22

"We are so glad for the common man of our country", Thomas John Muthoot, Chairman & Managing Director, Muthoot Pappachan Group.

Overall, even after substantially upping the allocation in various sectors, including Defence, North-East, Ayushman Bharat and MNREGA; also allocation for new mega schemes like Kisan Samman Nidhi & Shram Yogi Mandhan, fiscal deficit being contained at 3.4% is noteworthy.

From the perspective of Muthoot Pappachan Group, with its core & dominant business in wide spectrum of retail financial products & solutions focussed on the people at the lower ends of the socio-economic pyramid, through its array of NBFCs, there are indeed some explicit take-aways from the Budget, 2019.

Kisan Samman Nidhi, the direct transfer plan for all farmers owning upto 2 hectares of land potentially reaches out to - given the average size of a family as 4, if not more - to about 48 crore people. That's a whopping 40% people in India. Though the amount is small, at about 5% of per capita income and implementation is key, it could work meaningfully as a minimum guaranteed social security cover.

The identification of the workers in the unorganised sector, which is 85-90% of the workforce overall, is indeed really insightful and is like unearthing a hidden gem. It's a simple scheme with a decent Rs. 3,000 per month mega pension scheme for nearly 40 crore workers in the unorganised, who have almost zilch retiral or financial security cover. This Shram Yogi Mandhan or Mega Pension scheme is indeed a real & substantial step in Financial Inclusion.

Another thoughtful & strategic move is the real attempt to boost 'Make in India'. Commendably with focus at the grassroots, keeping the local and rural economy as the top priority. Expanding rural industrialisation using modern digital technologies to generate massive employment will not only increase consumption power of the people but will provide massive thrust to local manufacturing and local economy, thereby, creating a holistic economy moving towards more equitable distribution of wealth.

With the rising cost of living and yet, commendable level of aspirations for a better tomorrow amongst gritty people in India, at the bottom ends of the pyramid, Govt.'s recognition that the personal IT exemption limit of Rs. 2.5 Lacs is meaningless and so, enhancing the same to Rs. 5 Lacs with a slew of others measures in the same space, is indeed another insightful & thoughtful announcement.

Enhanced budget allocations for MNREGA, Defence Expenditure and major thrust on small to massive Infrastructural activities from rural roads to highways to Sagar Mala could have substantial positive impact on employment and monies reaching to people.

It does seem to be truly a budget for the bottom ends of the socio-economic pyramid and we at Muthoot Pappachan Group are indeed so glad for the quintessential common man of our country.
