    Banker's Take on Budget

    "Fiscal deficit and gross borrowings are in line with pre-budget expectations. Additionally, some part of borrowings within the gross borrowings is estimated to be raised overseas. So the pressure on domestic liquidity is that much less. Indian rupee can gain a bit on the back of this development. However, most of today's reactions could reverse as timing is key. Bond yields were expected to test 6.50% and today's low was close to that. Bias remains for softer yields this quarter," RK Gurumurthy, Head of Treasury, Lakshmi Vilas Bank said.

    Cigarette Stocks Rally

    "A very nominal excise duty has been imposed on tobacco products in this budget. The increase in this tax was expected to be much higher. Hence, the relatively low increase in taxes on sin goods will help companies like ITC," Gaurav Garg, head of research at CapitalVia Global Research said.

    Banker's Take on Budget

    "The government has tried to strike a balance between fiscal consolidation and supporting growth. With a hike in excise duties, increasing the target for divestments and for the dividend receipts, the government has made sure that overall revenue collections do not suffer. This was especially important at a time when the traction in GST and personal income tax collections remained muted. Now, with the downward revision in the collection target of these two categories, the overall revenue assumptions looks much more credible and pragmatic," Abheek Barua, Chief Economist, HDFC Bank said.

    Steep Revenue Target on Disinvestment

    "The government has laid steep revenue target on disinvestment. CPSE ETF have been successful to a large extent and government is looking for a greater participation from general public on this account. Hence government will offer an investment option on lines of ELSS (tax breaks) for ETF investing in CPSE’s. This should encourage long term investments in CPSE’s and also provide an alternate investment option to retail investor which is tax efficient," Akhil Mittal, Senior Fund Manager, Tata Mutual Fund said.
