Program Content:

The government of India has presented a budget that looks beyond this fiscal year. This is the first full-year budget since Prime Minister Narendra Modi's landslide victory in May 2014. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has eliminated the wealth tax and increased the surcharge on the super-rich, and is imposing penalties and prosecution enforcing the law on concealing foreign-sourced income and assets. The government is using various initiatives to support its "Made in India" campaign.

In this webcast, tax professionals from Grant Thornton India and Grant Thornton LLP will address highlights of the 2015-16 budget, along with major policy initiatives, and an overview of the long-awaited goods and service tax (GST).
