Mr Ujwal Landge, a well-known expert on Company Valuations and a noted Chartered Accountant who is a partner and CEO of a Mumbai–based E. A. Patil and Associates LLP, called the Budget a progressive setting of a strategic blueprint for inclusive development, particularly in housing and infrastructure sectors.

Analysing the implications of the interim budget presented by the Union Finance Minister Smt Nirmala Sitharaman, Mr Ujwal Landge, a well-known expert on Company Valuations and a noted Chartered Accountant who is a partner and CEO of a Mumbai – based E. A. Patil and Associates LLP called the Budget as progressive setting a strategic blueprint for inclusive development, particularly in housing and infrastructure sectors.  

Mr Landge said, “The Union Finance Minister unveiled a comprehensive roadmap in the interim budget, delineating the government’s strategic vision for inclusive development, particularly in the housing and infrastructure sectors. The Finance Minister’s commitment to immediate fiscal needs, outlined in her sixth consecutive budget, signifies a pivotal moment for the country. The budget has been hailed as growth-oriented and inclusive, with a particular focus on addressing the needs of four distinct demographic groups: the poor, women, youth, and farmers.”

Mr Landge, who is credited with various research papers in the field of Audit, Mergers and Acquisitions, Business Process Re-engineering (BPR), Financial Due diligence and System Improvement studies, noted that the targeted initiatives for rural housing, gender-inclusive housing provisions, and a focused approach to middle-class homeownership align seamlessly with the government’s vision for inclusive growth. The increased infrastructure outlay and innovative financial provisions further solidify the budget’s position as a forward-looking and comprehensive plan to address the evolving needs of the nation, he pointed out.

According to Mr Landge, a standout announcement was the government’s ambitious goal of constructing two crore houses in the next five years under the PM Awaas-Rural scheme. He added that the target of three crore houses under the PM AwaasYojana – Grameen, a rural housing program, was within close reach. “Notably, the commitment to allocate 70 percent of these houses for women underscores the government’s dedication to gender-inclusive development,” observed Mr Landge.

Another significant housing initiative, according to Mr Landge, was the launch of a housing program for the middle class. He mentioned, “The scheme aims to assist deserving sections of the middle class residing in rented houses or slums in building their own homes. This move aligns with the broader goal of fostering homeownership and represents a key step in realizing the government’s vision for a self-reliant and empowered middle class.”

Mr Landge’s note on the Budget further stated that with an allocation of Rs 11.11 lakh crore, the Government signalled its commitment to bolstering the country’s infrastructure. Mr Landge called the provision of Rs 75,000 crore, a 50-year interest-free loan to state governments, a novel and far–reaching proposal. He explained, “This financial injection is earmarked for milestone-linked reforms, demonstrating a commitment to collaborative governance.”
