Budgetary capex outlay to provide economic thrust amid global headwinds: TV Somanathan

According to finance secretary TV Somanathan, the Union Budget 2023-24 has been able to balance growth considerations through enormous boost to capital investment and infrastructure spending and individual taxpayers’ needs. The budget increased capital expenditure (capex) target by 33 per cent to Rs.10 trillion for 2023-24. Somanathan believes that the enhanced capex would provide the economic thrust needed in the face of global headwinds.
