    Dhiraj Relli, MD & CEO, HDFC Securities:

    The markets have reacted negatively to the Budget, mainly due to some disappointments on account of non-abolition of LTCG, confusion about the impact of DDT removal and taxing dividends in the hands of recipients.

    Nilesh Ramesh Jain, Derivative analyst- Equity Research, AnandRathi:

    We expect tepid start on Monday with negative bias. As long as it trades below 11800 levels we expect some consolidation in the range of 11500-11800 zone. However, it ended the extended session near its 200-DMA which is placed at 11650.

    Nilesh Shah, MD & CEO, Kotak Mahindra Asset Management Company:
    The budget is good on intent. However, the key is efficient execution in a time-bound manner. There are many positives to simplify things and encourage entrepreneurs but again, key will be execution in a time-bound manner. Intent needs to be converted into implementation.

    Amar Ambani, Senior President and Head of Research, Institutional Equities, YES Securities:

    We are quite satisfied with the budget math. Tax receipts appear achievable, especially once some flow comes through the amnesty scheme for direct tax cases. Likewise, disinvestment proceeds will also be large with LIC IPO on the cards. On the expenditure front, 13% yoy growth budgeted for FY21 matches with our estimate. Ramp up in GST revenues is a key monitorable.

    Shrikant Chouhan, Senior Vice-President, Equity Technical Research, Kotak Securities:

    We feel that the budget is balanced and has taken care of a number of sectors. It will certainly have a positive impact in the long run. Technically, the short-term trend is weak and is likely to continue for the next few trading sessions.

    Motilal Oswal, Managing Director & CEO, Motilal Oswal Financial Services:

    Markets have taken a cautious view on the budget, the tax rate cut and DDT benefit will help economy to grow and corporate payouts to increase, at these levels one should buy for long term.

    Nirmal Jain, Founder & chairman of IIFL:

    Dividend Distribution Tax (DDT) has been abolished and therefore obviously foreign investors will benefit but then it becomes fully taxable in the hands of shareholders which is not the right way of doing it because shareholders are also owners and as owners of the company they pay tax on profits and it gets taxed again. So, this might change the dividend culture of many companies, it will impact the private sector investment which has been very sluggish for the last 2 to 3 years at least.
