CNBC-TV18’s Shereen Bhan talks business before Budget 2014

MUMBAI: She is the most familiar face of Indian business news channel, providing investors and corporate India with insights about the dynamics of Indian economy and financial markets.  


CNBC-TV18 managing editor Shereen Bhan, who anchors and produces several shows such as Young TurksIndia Business Hour and Power Turks, is neck deep in work with the rail budget already announced and one day to go for the much awaited maiden budget to be presented by the new Narendra Modi led BJP government at the helm.


While most channels are looking at concentrating on one aspect, Bhan says that their perspective will be a 360 degree angle one. “The key question we will be asking is if the budget will be able to deliver. There will be a sharp focus on market reactions, the stance taken by other countries giving India a thumbs up and about investment in domestic capital. We will analyse the long term and short term ideas the government has as well as the reforms that will be taken up to revive the economy. We will also look at how the fiscal deficit can be improved by the new government. While the analysis will primarily be on the domestic economy, we will also look at the budget from a political angle and try to draw political reactions.”


The guest line-up includes India’s corporate giants like HDFC Bank chairman Deepak Parekh, HSBC India country head Naina Lal Kidwai, Godrej chairman Adi Godrej, Kotak Mahindra vice chairman Uday Kotak, GVK vice chairman Sanjay Reddy, TPG Growth India chairman Manish Chokhani and Helios Capital founder and fund manager Samir Arora. Foreign investors and rating agencies will also give their take on the budget.


To get a political perspective political parties like BJP, Congress, TMC, CPI (M) and leaders such as Jyotiraditya Scindia and Sitaram Yechury will be on air.


Bhan, who will be on air right from morning 8 am till late night, will be tracking foreign direct investment in the news sector and reforms in the capital markets and infrastructure sector.
