Symposium on Budget’16 & GST @ ISME
To bring differing perspectives on the proposals in the Budget’16 presented by the Finance Minister on 29th February, 2016, ISME organised “Symposium on Budget’16 & GST”. The event found success having invited an eminent practitioner CA Madhukar Hiragange as a keynote speaker.
The program commenced with students Ambiye Prajaktha and Shreesh Sharan giving an overview of the Budget’16 and its pivotal stance in the current economic situation.
Dr. Swaroop Reddy gave his seminar lecture on the topic “State of Economy – Global & India” to bring the context of economic importance of India’s policy decisions. He took us through a top-down approach of global perspective to Indian economic view.
Keynote Speaker CA Hiragange took the audience through a set of challenges faced in the area of indirect taxes by businesses and few modifications, especially, the ease of doing business proposals, were seen to be positives. Giving no clear roadmap towards GST implementation was a concern raised by Mr. Hiragange. His speech included the impact of these proposals in the overall economy’s good worth.
The program ended with thanksgiving by the students, while munching on the takeaways of the program.
