India’s budget 2022: focus on infrastructure to sustain economic growth

  • The fiscal deficit is estimated at 6.4% of GDP in FY23 (vs 6.9% in FY22), and the government maintains its fiscal consolidation target at less than 4.5% of GDP by FY26
  • Government bonds are unlikely to be included in global indices in FY23 given that no steps have been taken to eliminate capital gains tax — a key requirement for listing the government bonds on the Euroclear platform
  • Launch of central bank digital currency in FY23
  • 30% tax on gains from digital assets — a positive step towards recognition and part legalisation of digital assets
