January 21, 2020, New Delhi: Amid the talks of an economic slowdown, many are hoping that the upcoming Budget 2020 would turn out to be a balancing act. The Finance Ministry recently conducted the pre-budget meetings and invited the relevant stakeholders to present their expectations from the upcoming budget. To get the citizens perspective of what areas do they want the upcoming budget to address, LocalCircles conducted a large survey and received more than 80,000 responses from across the country.

Currently, for individuals under 60 years of age, there is zero tax up to annual income of 2.5 lakhs. Citizens were asked how should the Government change this going forward. 69% aid this should be increased to 5 lakhs18% said it should be increased to 3 lakhs. 7% said it should be kept at 2.5 lakhs only and 4% said it should be reduced to 2 lakhs instead.
