The Centre is reportedly considering tax relief for the middle class in the upcoming Union Budget 2020-21, which is likely to be presented on February 1 by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. Government officials and FM Sitharaman held series of pre-Budget consultations with leaders of various industries and other stakeholder groups to curb the ongoing economic slowdown. The government is also planning to benefit new home buyers this year. If reports are to be believed, the finance minister might increase tax incentives for the new home purchases.
