It is not the government’s business to be in business.

These announcements in the budget are a fillip of the Prime minister’s philosophy.

  1. Asset monetization of Air India, BPCL, Container corporation of India, Pawan Hans and IDBI bank among others in the coming financial year.

3. Government to sell its stake in LIC through an IPO.

The union budget for the year 2021–22 proposed by the Finance minister Mrs. Nirmala Sitharaman on 1st February backed the Prime minister’s philosophy to get the government away from businesses.


Explaining the Budget 2021 | This time let’s look into what is this Atmanirbharta that government is so much bragging about and by the way, you have to get your cars checked every 20 years from now. So head on to read below…

In the last three years, numerous financial firms have collapsed in a row. Remember the catchphrase which said, “PMC bank holders get a hell of a shock!”? Well while the lessons from PMC did help RBI save HDIL from near-bankruptcy, yet another corporate bank, YES bank collapsed owing to bad loan, lack of investment, overflow of liquidity and Modi government’s mishandling of the economy. Similarly, recall when PNB filed multiple criminal cases against Nirav Modi and associates? And just like that in 2019, the second-largest public sector bank had slumped. …


Well, well, well …… Putting Joe Biden in the Oval Office, it’s the Democrats with the triumph! The fierce yet amusing rivalry between the donkey and the elephant kept the world on its toes for days.
