Budget for FY 2017-18

I was amongst those who produced instant wisdom on the budget this year- wrote up my piece by 5 pm after the budget speech was announced. Quite an experience because it was hard to access the details until about 2:30 pm at the finance ministry website, perhaps due to the heavy load on the server.

To do justice, you need to have the budget estimates for the previous year, revised estimates and budget estimates for the current year on a spreadsheet. This is next to impossible when you are writing to a tight deadline.However, one can get a sense of whether the budget got it right on the whole.

Here's my analysis in the Hindu, A budget few can quarrel over.
