"The reforms the finance minister brought on the farmers is sensational," says Tanuja Chandra. She feels that since agriculture is the foundation of our country the debt waiver from public sector banks is a good thing. Speaking about the income tax Tanuja says,"Tax reforms are a good thing for people in my bracket. I feel tax reforms are a good thing provided they are executed for the right reason."
Tanuja believes the filtered cigarettes should’ve had duty raises rather the non-filtered ones. "Making tobacco expensive is good for the health of any country," she adds.
“Every woman should be financially sound. If a woman can have more money in her bank account it is a good thing, it will make them less dependent on others,” said Tanuja when we asked her about the new tax slab for women.
Luxury cars price drops she feels is not a very good thing. “See it is only the rich ones who buy luxury cars. Now those who already have four cars, will have six cars!” In contrast to that Tanuja feels that the excise duty cuts on small cars and two-wheelers is good provision. “Even though infrastructure will be affected, it will help in realising the vehicle-owning dreams of many,” says she.
When we asked her about the cost of gym equipment coming down she laughs, “I think this is in wake of more and more people wanting to look good with toned bodies.” On a serious note she adds, “I think this will affect only the upper middle class folks, because the remaining exercise in their daily commutes to work.”
