Budget 2015- Returning Indian economy to the path of explosive growth

MUMBAI: With Budget 2015, the entire nation awaits with hope. As Railway Minister, Suresh Prabhu and Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley present the Rail and Union Budget on 26 and 28 February respectively, nearly every economic indicator is favourable - inflation is down, so are crude oil prices, foreign exchange reserves are at a peak and foreign investors are interested again in India’s stock markets.


So, what will Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his team do to return India to the oath of exponential growth?


To decode this much-awaited budget, CNN-IBN and IBN7 will bring rolling coverage on the Rail Budget and Union Budget 26 February (today) and on 28 February, respectively, under the aegis of the specially branded shows Modi Express & The Modi Budget on CNN-IBN and Prabhu Ki Patri & Jaitley Ki Potli on IBN7.


These will be a culmination of a series of pre-budget shows that both channels have been running capturing the mood, expectation and suggestions from a cross-section of individuals from corporate to entrepreneurs to students. With more than 18 hours of live programming on each channel, the network is all set to be the one stop destination for viewers to know everything about the upcoming budgets.


The finest editorial teams of both the channels including Bhupendra Chaubey, Sumit Awasthi, Karma Paljor, Shereen Bhan, Sanjay Pugalia and Anubha Bhonsle will bring budget updates, public reactions and impact assessment.


They will be joined by the country’s most formidable economists and commentators including former member-traffic, railway board SB Ghose Dastidar, Concor/Container Corporation of India founding CMD Raghu Dayal, former additional member, planning, railway board Sumant Chak and Smartwave railway expert / CEO Sanjeeva Shivesh for Rail Budget 2015.
