It will make Indian students more capable and competitive globally. The FM’s decision to promote greater autonomy and focus on better academic outcomes in higher education will boost the morale of institutions and encourage them to go above and beyond to deliver a better result. Government’s decision to launch’ Study in India’s programme will attract foreign students in higher education resulting in an increase in our national income. ”
Paritosh Dey, Co-Founder & CEO, Benling India Energy and Technology Pvt Ltd. “Govt’s mission of bringing an Electric Vehicle (EV) revolution to India is truly path-breaking and will surely provide the much-needed impetus to the industry. In line with its road map for EVs in the next four years, the budget offers upfront incentives on the purchase of EVs. The move goes hand in hand with other measures to promote the sector, such as proposed reduction in the goods and services tax (GST) rate for EVs to 5 per cent from 12 per cent and batteries from 18 per cent to 12 per cent. We welcome the Government’s vision to protect the environment and lead energy revolution with EVs in the coming years.”
